Don't get disheartened by the bad reviews, the cruise was amazing.

Overall, the ship was amazing. The dining was a WOW!! Although the entertainment was average, with only 4 or 5 musicals, the ship still kept our family of 4 busy throughout the whole day. The sporting and fitness ...

Overall they have to do better.

The embarkation was the best we have had. The evening meal got off to a poor start. Steak pie in a pot was on the menu, and that was all you got - no potatoes, no vegetables. Was told there were vegetables in the ...

Not as good as Golden but still good

The reason for my title is only because I feel like the staff seemed "not in to it" on this one, possibly because it also seemed like the same amount of staff for almost 700 more passengers. They seemed shortstaffed ...
