Review summary

This was our first cruise since the shutdown and things from start to finish went smoothly.The crew was vigilant on their cleaning of everything.Masks we’re required,but they (staff) didn’t patrol the ship making sure you had one on.If you had space from others you didn’t need to wear one,that was both inside and outside.The theater was divided by vac downstairs and non-vac upstairs (and there weren’t many non-vac people).They had you wash your hands before you could enter Windjammer,which was good because lets face it,most people’s hygiene habits aren’t great!We used the spa (vac people only)and felt safe with using it,by the way,it was amazing the massage I got!The ship holds approximately 6,000 guests and we sailed with under 1,900…it was like the ship was ours at times!Go on a cruise and enjoy yourself!

Food and Dining

The food and service in main dining room was great.The buffet was not self serve,which wasn’t a problem and the food was hit or miss with me as far as selection goes…a lot not to my liking?What I did have was good,like the make to order pasta station.
