Review summary

Great ship, great crew. The food and activities are geared to Chinese clientele. So, if you are an English speaking westerner, I would not recommend this trip.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
The crew was great and the menu is geared to the Chinese market, especially the windjammer.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
The pool and hot tubs were good. The solairium is not adults only.

Great ship and staff

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The 270 room was my favorite place. I think all their new ships should have that room instead of the aqua show.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
I was a solo traveler and the inside cabin was studio sized.

Ship tip

Do not sail on this ship unless you love Chinese food and speak Chinese.
