Review Summary

Unfortunately, I broke my hip playing pickle ball within two months of this cruise. However, regardless of having to use a walker, we could not have had a better time. We fell in love with cruising and will always be grateful to our friend who suggested we book this cruise.

We had nothing to compare it to so thought it was perfect.

Since this was our first cruise, we were blown away with the dining choices. All of the food was delicious!

Onboard Activities

We are not into sophomoric games, but I liked the knitting group, and my husband like the sudoku.

We loved the ship's singers and dancers, comedians, ventriloquist, and guest speaker.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
From our cabin steward to our waiters, we felt pampered and very well taken care of in every way.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
We live on a very small island so were a bit overwhelmed at the size and interior design of this ship, but we loved it all.
