Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

the bridge and dancing teachers were wonderful and we met many lovely people. Three of the entertainers were excellent, the rest mediocre to bad.  The food was bland and generally overcooked; although the pastry chef did a good job in the dining room. Our dining room service was not to our liking, so we typically ate in the cafeteria. The good news was we gained no weight.  There was loud music playing every where all the time. The only quiet place we found to read was our room. Gym was adequate for our needs and the instructor did a nice job.  Given the quality of the main restaurant, we didn't try the specialty restaurants.

Cabin / Stateroom
It was hard to get our preferred interior room. They "upgraded" us to and outside cabin and we had to pay extra to return to an inside.

Cab driver overcharged us. Not sure how to handle this. He wouldn't give us our bags til we paid him.


If you carry your own bags, you can disembark any time between 6 and 8 am. Try to get my time dining.
