Review summary

Awesome ship. The staff was very accommodating. The food was tasty but not so much for the fish other than delicious crab legs & sushi. We enjoyed the wine list as it was interesting to try different wines by the glass. This was something we enjoyed as they rotated the same wines over & over, We simply just got bored. The spa was absolutely wonderful but better than using space for a casino. The included tours were not great but somewhat acceptable. Not a luxury cruise but totally fine. I'm not sure that if I paid full price that I would've given it such good reviews.
