Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
All food areas offered a wide range of choices to suit all tastes, could have had a wider range of diabetic choices

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Only visited the adults only pool and thought it quite small as only enough room for a few people only at a time to swim, also access to pool was difficult due to a lot of steep steps.
