The ship is older and in disrepair. We had no safe in our room and no one resolved that issue. I counted myself fortunate to have A/C in our room since numerous people we met on the ship did not have A/C through out the entire cruise. The ... Read more

Loved the itinerary. Cabins were spacious with two closets (balcony cabin). The use of RF SeaPasses was great but WOW bracelets were a bit awkward since the roving bar servers on deck had to take your bracelet to record your purchase and ... Read more

This was a getaway cruise for just my wife and I to relax away from our kids. However, it started off very poorly as soon as we got to the terminal. We spent almost 1 hour in our car in a line on the street waiting to get into the ... Read more

This was my first cruise. I didn't experience any sea sickness. There were plenty of activities to choose from such ice skating, riding wave rider, going to the gym or spa. Or something low key like reading in the library or at the pool. ... Read more
