Cabin: Studio Stateroom

Beautiful ship, but for the size, was a huge shortage in lounge chairs & only 1 pool. There were several jacuzzis, but chairs were always gone before 7am. Once you finally get a chair in the sun, then people open umbrellas so you’re no longer in the sun. Was very disappointed that a ship this size would be so lacking. On the other hand, solo organization was fabulous. Bianca made sure we always had great entertainment, group dinner reservations when we hadn’t made personal plans and she made sure we had a nice continental breakfast daily. Studios were great for some people. But having been a balcony cruiser in the past, the studio was a little tight for me. I made the choice based on what friends were doing for solo travel benefits. The observation lounge was very nice. Shows were great & the piano comedy bar was fun. Lots of choices in restaurants, but 3 restaurants had the same menu. Seemed kind of wierd. 2 restaurants lost our personal reservation. One was on Christmas Eve. Was disappointing. Friends enjoyed the race cars & spa package, but I was most interested in relaxation in the sun after a stressful year at work. Definitely not the cruise for that. Ship scores a big fat zero in that department. In the future will make another option.

Studio Stateroom

Cabin T8

Very small. Bed felt like it was caving in. I liked the space under the bed for luggage. Housekeeping was very good.
