This was not a cheap cruise but there was something cheap about the experience.

The ship overall is in very good condition, the staff was very good and cheerful. Most of the entertainment was not great, and they seemed to be catering to the over 75 crowd with ventriloquist acts and the such. The duo that played at at the Compass Room was very limited in their playlist and not great. The dancers in the production show were not attractive and it was somewhat distracting, the singers were very good.

The biggest complaint to post is that this ship has a major design flaw when it comes to the Thermal Spa and it's location. It is right below the treadmills and exercise room/floor. So when you were trying to relax on the stone beds, it sounded like two hippo's were wrestling above your head. The staff really could not do anything but apologize. Don't waste the money on it.

Cabin Review

Nice room on the Lido deck in the front of the ship, straight down from the pools. The negative is that the deck was smaller than other floors but it was pretty cold in most ports, so we didn't use it much.
