Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Always fresh food in buffet. They kept all items full, could order special request items or have them prepare a item the way you like. Crown Grill, filet was delicious but lobster tail was small and fishy.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
They are saints! To be able to put up with the varieties of different people from all countries. And they always address you with a hello and a smile, even the chefs assistants in buffet behind the lines. Drink servers were always right there as soon as they saw you sit down or in different areas of ship. Especially Pablo at the smoking deck 17.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Beautiful decor, always clean public restrooms. State rooms always kept up with clean towels and turn down beds.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Size was just right for 2 people. Restroom small and needs a exhaust fan plus shower handles are slippery and could use disposable rubber grips. If you were falling, they really wouldn’t help you, the way they are. No gripping power.

Ship tip

Bring water, soft drinks as much as you can, since they charge for these. But you can request glasses of water free and use ice cubes in your frig.
