Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Thomas Keller restaurant was under whelming. Many guests felt this speciality restaurant was overrated. I heard comments such as tough meat, too rich, too much dressing on Caesar salad, lacks vegetables, etc.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Trivia, bridge and the lectures were popular with the guests. I love the ‘block party’ where you could meet your neighbors.


5 out of 5
Entertainment was great. A view of the stage was blocked by pillars for some of the seats. I felt the shows were too late and other guests shared this opinion. They begin at 9:45 PM.

Children's Programs

1) No program for children

Service and Staff

As always some were FANTASTIC and others were okay.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The ship was clean and well maintained. The cabins and bathroom was larger than the standard ship cabin. Pillars in the theatre blocked vision of some passengers.
