The cruise in general was a lot of fun. By the time it had ended, my mom and I had wished we had signed up for a longer cruise. We didn't think we would enjoy being on a boat together for 7 days. It flew by all too quickly.
The crew members are very friendly and always happy to help. The food was amazing. The service was awesome.
The only few things that I didn't enjoy too much was how pricey some of the services were...like the spa. I would have loved to indulge but those prices were on the line of too much/ridiculous in my opinion.
Some of the days, the activities on board were a little bland. But we always found something to do whether it was go tan outside or just walk around.
Also, This cruise was a majority of very old people. Everyone was friendly but it would have been nice to see more people around my age group (age 27) and be able to hang out with them.
However, these things did not take away from any fun that we had and would have loved to stay on the cruise to do one more week.

I even kept telling them that maybe something is wrong with the door and it took them about 3-4 days to check the battery life on the card reader which later when tested, had very low battery. It would have been nice to have avoided this hiccup early on. The last 2 days or so, we finally were able to get into our door with no problem.
otherwise, our steward kept our room very clean and always provided us with fun towel folded animals.
You can go much earlier than the suggested boarding time and its recommended. People start lining up to check-in VERY early and it gives you a nice opportunity to explore whats on the boat before everyone gets on. Bring nice gala clothes - a lot of people dress up.
