We picked this cruise because it offered a great itinerary for the price and because it offered activities to fit a variety of interests. We travelled as a group of twelve with ages ranging from 12, 16, 19, mid forties to mid fifties. Overall this was a good cruise. This itinerary meant we spent a lot of time off the boat, but the meals and entertainment were decent. Staff were friendly and helpful. The food was below average from what we have had on HA and Celebrity. Drink selection was quite good, but having to pay for bottled water because it wasn't included in drink package was a real drawback for us. Many people commented on the layout of the room as being a negative because the toilet was separate from the shower and sink, but we found this to be convienient when getting ready. There are sliding doors for both areas, so you still have lots of privacy. The boat is huge. We really noticed the crowds on sea day. I would not enjoy this boat on a cruise where you spend a lot of time on the boat. We struggled to find sun chairs and there were long lines at the restaurants and bars. Entertainment was really good. Precilla and the Cirque show were awesome. We don't often attend the ship evening shows, because we find them pretty lame, but it was very entertaining. We booked our own transfers and excursions because the prices from the cruise lines are always much higher.

Something for Everyone.

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin MD 0927
Can't remember our exact cabin number, but we had a mid ship mini suite with balcony on the 9th level. Cabin had lots of room with plenty of storage. The most we have had on any cruise. The layout and flow made sense and everything worked as it should. Water pressure was very good in the shower.
