Review summary

A very good cruise, see my review from a few months ago for a more in depth look at the ones and outs.


2 out of 5
We arrived early, maybe 9am while there was a stream of people coming out. They were not ready for us and we waited around for a while until we could give them our bags around 11am. The nasty thing is that they made us wait behind others who arrived later for no apparent reason.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The buffet was good, nice variety, seed to be fresh and tasty. The idea cream shop was poor, had very few toppings and it tasted watery. Main dining room was great and the waiter made real connections.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
None of the activities were particularly memorable, they were fine but nothing special.
