This cruise was preselected by the senior center. The size of the ship was nice , not too big. Overall staff was courteous and well seasoned . Specialty dining very expensive. Other cruise lines have specialty dining at no extra charge. Difficult making reservations for dining. Too much sales pitching to book additional cruises to the point almost pushy. WiFi not good and expensive. Staff not fully educated on WiFi when we asked for help signing in. Has to go to service desk 3 times before we hit on the right person to help . We had a balcony cabin. It was a bit small we could not move aroud comfortably. Bathroom very small. Food was very good. Wait staff excellent. Good points of the cruise. Drink package. Gratuity package included in the price of our trip. Entertainment was very good. A nice variety of entainers I would cruise again but would choose another cruise line

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony
Cabin BA 9128
Cabin was a bit small. Very little room to get around. Bathroom very small. I’ve been on other ships where the bathing/shower area was separate from the toilet area. It was much more convenient when the cabin is for 2 people. Cabin stewards kept the room clean
Deck 10 Inside Cabins, Balcony Cabins, Suite Cabins
