We were 1st time cruisers,2 adults and boys 19 and 15, easy to board as all crew were helpful , luggage delivered 1 hrs after. dinner at Norveau rest 1st night, food was so delicious and the desserts were delicious but had chocolate sampler that was heaven, We had breakfast some days at empire rest or lido deck, but coffee I paid for as I prefer good coffee, Tried burritos, bbq area, burgers for lunch yum, night we had empire restaurant food was ok but you did not have to stick to entree ,main and dessert, my 19 year old had two main meals and dessert on last night, by the way the desserts are very good Did cooking demo at Norveau and absolutely loved this as we sampled Loved trivia, did the shows, boys went to comedy show and magic show My only thing is that my 2 boys found entertaining themselves during day was limited as 1st days waterslide not working and arcade was not their thing, Disembarked and only took 5 mins

Enjoyed ourselves

We were 1st time cruisers,2 adults and boys 19 and 15,

easy to board as all crew were helpful , luggage delivered 1 hrs after. dinner at Norveau rest 1st night, food was so delicious and the desserts were delicious but had chocolate sampler that was heaven,

We had breakfast some days at empire rest or lido deck, but coffee I paid for as I prefer good coffee,

Tried burritos, bbq area, burgers for lunch yum, night we had empire restaurant food was ok but you did not have to stick to entree ,main and dessert, my 19 year old had two main meals and dessert on last night, by the way the desserts are very good

Did cooking demo at Norveau and absolutely loved this as we sampled

Loved trivia, did the shows, boys went to comedy show and magic show

My only thing is that my 2 boys found entertaining themselves during day was limited as 1st days waterslide not working and arcade was not their thing,

Disembarked and only took 5 mins

Cabin Review

Interior with Window (obstructed views)
Cabin 4K 4140
Ours was 4140 it was spacious enough, we had two life boats either side of our French doors, so it was nice to have natural light, I found the bet slightly hard,but I do enjoy soft beds, pillows were soft
The boys had 4107 which was made up of two singles, plenty room for them, their doors looked out at two life rafts but fine for them
Both cabins were clean when we arrived, bathroom stocked of all the towels and shampoo and shower gel full
Everyday the rooms were cleaned and restocked of supplies, could not fault
Main Deck Inside Cabins, Balcony Cabins, Suite Cabins
