Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food onboard was generally very tasty. We felt that the lunch buffet was a bit repetitive with the same items every day. We tried the anytime dining for the first time, but missed having the same wait staff. Service was very prompt and the menu offered many choices.

Onboard Activities

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had an aft facing balcony which had all of the standard features. The bed was probably the most comfortable that I have ever had on a cruise. Only issue was on the balcony which was hard to keep clean due to soot from the engines. The room was a bit noisy during cruising speed.Make

Ship tip

Make sure to be Ocean ready with the Medallion.
