Sail Date: Jul 2018
Cabin: Boardwalk View Balcony
Traveled with children

The good:. Excellent crew. Neat ship to explore. Excellent entertainment. We were surprised how good cats was. Every port had a dock, so we didn't have to endure a tender to shore once.

The bad:. Cost cutting and schemes to extract money from customers diminishes the experience. Food is poor. Desserts are obviously from the cheapest supplier they could find. Everything you purchase has an additional 18 percent fee. Need clothes washed? That will be $3.50 for each t-shirt. Want it today? Add another 50%. Want to take those pictures you just paid $100 for home? Buy this $20 folder. Room service? $8.

After getting on the ship, you are attacked with various things to buy. Each with a carefully designed cost structure to get you to spend more. Four different photographers wanted to take the same pictures of us at one dinner.

Cabin Review

Boardwalk View Balcony

Cabin 2I

Cabin was tight for three people. Clean, but certainly not luxurious. Sound from boardwalk was tolerable. Quiet at night, but you can hear sounds from loud shows. It was nice to watch the aqua show from our room.
