"This is the sexiest ship I’ve ever sailed on. Atrium extends from the main floor to the top of the ship, so natural light pours through the center of the ship. Decor is chic and the ship is spotlessly clean. Even public restrooms are always perfect."

"The amazing part is that we never felt like there were around 5,999 shipmates on board. The ship's public areas are scattered about and 'break down' such large numbers of passengers."

"There is a real family atmosphere onboard that develops and increases as the cruise goes on. The amenities are second to none whether it be the staterooms, dining venues or public spaces for relaxing or entertainment."
