Swimming Pools

4 out of 5

They have 2 pools the outside one isn’t very big but that’s where the bar is, music and extra activities. Lounge chairs are right on top of each other, I use to move my chair out and find a spot otherwise u honestly can’t get into chair when it’s Sea day and very crowded

Gift Shop

3 out of 5

Try to shop when they have specials, everyday they offer an incentive, last full day they have a pretty good sale,

Day Spa and Fitness Center

4 out of 5

I had a massage my daughter booked it was awesome, also a hair style which I had won. Look for the freebies they offer and try to take advantage

Santorini, Greece

3 out of 5
Disappointed heard so much about hear, it’s beautiful from the ship but once u get to it just a lot of souvenir shops, no flat ground and to get to it u have 3 options, donkey ride 6 euro ow , walk 547 steps up or down or take a gondola up or down 6 euro each way, gondola could also have long lines we waited for over an hour coming down.

Valletta, Malta

4 out of 5
Easy to get there compared to the other ports. We chose to walk do I would say about a mile walk in total. Coming back though a hiccup, stood in the sweltering sun for 45 minutes waiting for a boat to take us back to ship
