We chose this cruise because it was so close to home and we didn't have to fly to get to it and to give a different cruise line a try. I wasn't disappointed but I wasn't very impressed either. Boarding the ship wasn't too bad but when on ... Read more

This was indeed a fun trip and the crew was amazing. Our grandkids had a great time. On the other hand, for the number of people, and especially kids, on board, the pools were way inadequate. They were far too small. The pools and sun ... Read more

Odd interior décor - lots of pink and gold. Staff at Casino Bar were fantastic. Ship layout was confusing as we generally got lost all the time - especially when finding restaurants (Gold and Black Pearl). Food on Lido Deck ... Read more

This was my first cruise in the US. We paid 299 each for a balcony room. The room was huge compared to my cruise on Princess. There was a long bench built into the wall, and plenty of storage place. My one complaint about the room is that ... Read more
