My rating is based on my opinion of what a cruise should consist of namely a week of relaxation and pampering.This ship is targetting families ,younger couples and groups.They have daily game shows,bingo,karaoke,flash sales every day of cheap watches,bags scarves ete. The top deck has a small adult only pool which we were never able to get into because it was so busy.However there is a massive childrens aqua park takes up most of the space.The ship is noisy and there are a surprising amount of children.I have children but when i go on a cruise i want peace and quiet .We had to wait each evening for about 20 minutes to get into the complimentary restaurants and even sometimes at breakfast.Not what you expect on a 5 star cruise. We spent the first 3 days and nights on the ship which is far too long.We visited american virgin islands (ok) british virgin islands do the island tour scenery is wonderfull.and bahamas island tour is terrible better to walk into the town as there is plenty to see and do.we spent most of our time on the balcony,Also it is expensive on the ship and everything costs money wifi is 150$ for the week scandalous .

Waste of money; don't do it.

Cabin is ok not as big as their other ships.Classed as extra balcony space but not much different to the others although the cabins below us had balconies 3 times ours.
