We are a family of 4, children ages 10 and 13. This was our first cruise and were a little nervous based on reviews posted on line. All we can figure is that some people will complain about any detail, just to complain.
This was a beautiful, well kept ship. The food was good, based on the number of people it had to be prepared for. The staff was excellent, kind attentive and probably offered the highest level of service we have received on any vacation.
The ship is small, compared to others in the fleet, but the trade off is minimal waiting in lines and areas available to catch a moment alone.
Cabin was clean well kept and had plenty of storage
Easy boarding. Quick and efficient. 20 dollar valet was well worth it!
