After all the hype about this ship I couldn't wait to get on it. I watched videos of it all the time. I don't know if a longer cruise would have given me a better impression or not. I feel like I was gypped. Too many people trying to do the same thing in a short time so you missed a lot. I took my 16 year old grand daughter on this cruise. They didn't get my reservation for North Star & had no more openings so we couldn't do that. I really wanted to do it. Didn't care about Ifly. They changed my reservation for We Will Rock You to a time that interfered with my dining reservation. I had to change it to an afternoon show. They changed Spectra's to a different day than I had reserved also. I wasn't even notified of the changes. I read about people's reservations being changed so I checked mine & found out they were changed too. My grand daughter wanted to do the bumper cars. It was a 1 1/2-2 hour wait for a 3 minute ride! We didn't wait. Another thing we didn't get to do.

The only seats we could find for Spectra were in the last row off to the side. I don't understand why the lights were so dim for this show. With that & our seats being so far away, you couldn't really see that great. It was a pretty good show though. I think the design of this room was poorly done. Went 1/2 hour early for We Will Rock You to get a good seat. I did enjoy it although the character of Galileo was a bit annoying at times. Trying to get a seat at the Music Hall was impossible. Three times we went, 3 times there were no seats. Not even a place to stand & watch.

The juggler was amazing and very funny.

Cabin Review

Cabin Interior Virtual Balcony

Cabin was small but had plenty of storage space. Bed was very comfortable. Couldn't really tell what the weather was on the virtual balcony. It looked like there was no sun but when I got up to the open decks, it was sunny.
