I chose this ship because it was one of the newest and we went in the getaway and enjoyed it. We knew it was a “sister ship”but thought it would look a little different and have it’s own personality however it was exactly the same as the getaway. The in room decor and carpet seems old. Our carpet was stained and not cleaned well. Actually our balcony floor was filthy and our cabi steward forgot to make up our room a few nights. I actually had to leave her a note 3-4 days to remind her to bring coffee towels and ice. Actually one ,or if we didn’t even have coffee cups so we could not make our coffee. The restaurants were good overall. Forget about getting a drink at any bar during sea days. This is not an exaggeration at all.... trust me. You can’t get into the main pool area cause it’s so small and there are over 3000 people sitting around it. We sat in the adult only area quite a bit however the cooling spray area water was sooo cold no one could get in it. Too cold. Shows were good, the new rock club was awesome and we went 5 out of 7 nights. I liked the two main shows and did a few wine tastings ( not free) and were good. The new harvest caye stop in Belize was awesome!!!!! We had a good time in costa maya, there is a new adult only pool area near the dolphin area. Was awesome. You had to pay either $15 per chair or order $15 worth if food or drink from the waiter. Was worth the money and would do it again. Was quite but the view was amazing. First time gettin on a shop in New Orleans and was quick, easy and we were on the ship by 1130am. Was very cool cruising out on the Mississippi River. Took over 6 hours but the first hour was cool. Getting off the ship was awesome. They have a service that will take your bags directly from the ship and bring to airport for you and also deliver boarding passes directly to your room the day before leaving. I thought this was awesome and it allowed my husband and I to see the sights of New Orleans for a few hours before our flight home. This is a great service!!! Overall a great trip just a little aggravating with the bar service. If you don’t drink, this is the trio for you.

Good but not great

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony Stateroom
Cabin BA 11166
Room steward forgot to make up our room a few evenings and always forgot that I needed extra towels everyday and did not refresh ice, coffee and sugar without me writing her a note or finding her in the hallway. Also our room never seemed vacuumed and the balcony floor was disgusting with bugs etc.
