We chose this cruise because we wanted a family vacation in the sun. Most of the cruise was perfect. We booked late and I was told we would either be put in a room for 3 or have a rollaway bed. They put a blowup mattress in the cabin which even my youthful daughter found miserable. They finally brought a rollaway but it was only a foot off the ground and collapsed. The rest of the cruise was perfect. The food was great. John the cruise director made a point of getting to know us. Two of the singers Clara and Mark had dinner with us, and were charming dinner companions. The ports were varied, so there was something for all involved. We appreciated the stop in the Dominican Republic, because although it was poor compared to the other ports, the people all expressed gratitude that we stopped there. We ate in all 3 specialty dining rooms, and enjoyed them all. Compass Rose we had a waitress named Risky who was awesome. She found a way to make anything we asked for happen. Cabin 656 was good location as it was low enough in ship that even when weather was less optimal you didn't feel the motion. It was close enough to elevator, but not noisy. The laundry was on this floor and easy to use.

Cabin Review

Concierge Suite

Cabin D

The cabin had ample space for 3. The only knock the entire cruise was the bed for my daughter was initially an air mattress. It deflated and even for someone in her 20's was uncomfortable. They replace it with a rollaway which collapsed. It was only a foot off the ground. Closet space and bathroom were vert ample. The veranda was large and The chaise was comfortable, but there was only 1 and two large chairs.
