Don't go unless you're a senior! This is not a cruise ship for a younger crowd and families. The ship itself was lovely enough with all standard cruise ship stuff. The entertainment was all aimed at the golden oldies crowd, only 2 shows out of 12 we liked. Fine dining restaurant we didn't enjoy, quality and service lacking. Creperie was nice for $7 a couple of nights. The buffet was almost always the same so you get sick of it and I didn't find much I liked. Was good when they had occasional roast pork or a chocolate fountain, but the chocolate quality was poor. Only twice we got milk chocolates on our pillows at night, the rest of the time was dark (which we don't like) or an Oreo that they destroy by dunking in terrible tasting chocolate. We had a great time relaxing poolside all day as there wasn't much to do. Child enjoyed kids club but we've seen much better. If you're aged 20-50 and/or a family, stick with Royal Caribbean for way better entertainment and fun stuff to do! Disney cruise line is even better if you're cruising from USA.

Highly Overrated!

Cabin Review

Deluxe Veranda
Cabin 2B 6233
Standard balcony cabin. Main bed not very comfortable. Child sleeps on hard sofa with sheets. Asked for the Pullman and told it's dangerous. Got them to pull the mattress down to put on sofa which was better. TV has terrible quality screen. Bathroom was modern but small.
