This was a charter cruise so most of the standards don't apply. Overall it was nice. I just wish the bow was open all the time not just for special occasions. The buffet was ok nothing to brag about and the staff were very nice and always accommodated us. The ship was clean and reasonably well maintained, but the cherry on top was the cloth towels in the public bathrooms. Each bathroom had individual cloth towels for your hand as well as paper to open the door but 90% of the time I could use the cloth and drop in the towel receptacle. The best part of the trip was the cabin. It was very roomy and comfortable and the staff took care of my request to empty the mini fridge so I could put my own soda in it. It was also nice to have USB charging ports on the desk and night stands for electronics.

Cabin Review

Interior Stateroom
Cabin J 1048
The Cabin was very roomy and one of the best I have had on many different cruise lines. The size was very roomy for two. The cabin staff was really good. The location was good and easy to get around the ship. Very quiet and no vibrations or strange noises.
