We booked this ship for the itinairy and because of the reviews. It’s our 7th cruise. We cruised Royal Carribean ( Allure, Oasis, Quantum, Jewel) Norvegian Getaway, and Canival. We are a big family with 4 kids ( 13 to 19) we love this ship. Stateroom are very well organise, lots of storage it’s impressive. The variety and quality of food is remarkable at the buffet best we had. In the main dining room we had great and fast services but we usually arrive around 6:45 pm if you plan to eat after 19:00 it get more busy and services take more time. We love the shows very good and divertising, the magician is so good, we saw free shows every night and enjoy ourself. My 17 years old son loved the teenclub we did not see him the hole week. We try every activities on the ship. We can not say a bad thing if you planned in advance what you want to do and arrive when it begins you never have to wait long line except for the waterslide with tube because the have to size of tube and not much of them but this is very fun. This ship made a priority on clean hand to avoid getting sick and we appreciate that no need to bring extra Purel at the table because the have extra disinfectant in the buffet. Any time you reenter the ship “washy washy lady are there”. Every people working on this ship is very nice, helping and smily. There is a very good “vibe” on this ship good music all time on the pool deck not to loud and we never feel it was crowded on this ship. Lots of chairs on the decks. You can always find a place to sit compare to Getaway. Best gym ever, good machine weighs ...it get busy cause it so good. Everything seem to be planed to facilitate our live there. Easiest way to get a tender is to go at the guest services not on the TV or cruise app. No confu sion or long wait in line to get off of the boat . It was a breeze each time no stress compare to all our other cruises. We did all port of cruise on our own. We walked to Palma (45 minutes) but saw nice bikes to rent just out of the ship that could have been a good idea because there a bicycle path next to the sidewalk from the boat to the city or you have the bus just there also, in Canne we went to the public beach ( 30 minutes walk 16 euro for two chairs and umbrella) Rome, Sorrento and Naples we hired driver from Private tour in Italy with Domenicco very good company. In conclusion we love, love , love this ship. Don’t hesitate.

Best of our cruises
