Review summary

We were pleased with the ship, even though it is bigger than what we are used to. We enjoyed the cruise, but we decided eight days is not long enough.....

we had no problems at all, and were on board before 1030.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Horizons was very good, although the menu was much the same every day. We ate there almost all the time, and enjoyed it. We were disappointed in the main dining room. Our waiter was a bit "over the top", and the food on the second night was completely lacking in presentation. We did not go back.

Onboard Activities

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was very clean and we could not fault it. Plenty of places to sit and read or just relax. Liked the idea of many tables and chairs on the pool deck.
