2016 Cruise

Sail Date: June 25, 2016

Reviewed: 11 months ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

- nice ship

- in general very pleasant staff (we did have a couple that were not as pleasant)

- good food

- some entertainment was good, but some was just ok and repeated the second week of our cruise.

- menu for dining room was somewhat limited.  Good food, but limited choices

- staff at the gangway (most) was not pleasant, no acknowledgement or smiles



Cabin / Stateroom
Layout was not the greatest when the bunks are out. We have been on other cruises with a better layout where having the bunks out, did not have a significant impact on ability to move around in the room. Also, initially our stateroom attendant would not combine the twin beds.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
While it worked well, a smile or acknowledgement from staff would have been nice.
Ship Quality
All good except for midship where stairs lead to no where.
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs Did no participate
unfortunate to repeat some week 1 and week 2. Comedian was excellent.
Service and Staff
most staff was pleasant but a few were not. Gangway staff could at least smile.
Food and Dining


Don't use midship elevators or stairs...they lead to no where.
