Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
I found main dining room menu choices not to my taste very seafood oriented or food I wasn’t fussed on so I ate in Horizon buffet. Great range of food you would be very hard pressed to say you couldn’t find something up there. The desserts were amazing very spoilt for choice. My fav place on board was the International cafe

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Pools were great and a decent size, did visit the sanctuary one afternoon but you do have to pay for that. $40 all day or $20 half a day

Service and Staff

Everyone on the ship was happy and couldn’t do enough for you. Room steward NOA was amazing she looked after me so well. Loved the staff at the international cafe made me great coffee every day also staff at terrace grill were lovely. Didn’t encounter anyone who was grumpy or unhappy

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Loved everything about the ship, the fake grass was good you felt you had something safe to walk on in areas that could have proven to be very slippery. The ship was so clean although maybe the windows looking out of international cafe could have neeen cleaned a little more often

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
While my cabin was quite small it was clean and comfortable. The hair dryer didn’t work but since I have short hair it didn’t really matter. The bathroom is fine and pressure in shower is good. Because of the design and lighting placement the shower was a little dark once you closed the shower curtain but I got used to that. The bed was very comfortable and pillows great. Nice cold fridge, safe for passports etc.

Ship tip

Relax and enjoy, my next cruise I would choose a cabin on the opposite side of riviera deck as the smokers section was right outside the glass doors on the side my cabin was on and I had to walk through them every morning to get outside.
