Sail Date: Jun 2019
Cabin: Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

Very overcrowded, Casino allows smoking, food and staff was above par. Rock of Ages in the main theater was a bunch of high schoolers. Mini Suite emphasizes on mini with a very small balcony. Beds were 2 twins put together to make a king but with a valley between the 2. Very uncomfortable. The water in the sink was scalding hot immediately so if you have small kids keep them away from the sink until the water cools down. Our suite was 1 level above a night club and the noise kept us up passed midnight.. Ship posts a passenger capacity of 3963 but we were told there were almost 4800 passengers. Forget about a chaise near the pool on sea days or getting someone to serve drinks. Pool area was plain and boring, whitewashed walls. Shore excursion was very overcrowded as well. Most of the time the soap dispensers were empty in the public restrooms. The buffet staff was excellent in reminding us to wash our hands but missed the small area of black mold on one of the walls and ceiling. Disembarkation was a total cluster. We had to leave our cabin by 9am but our disembarkation color wasn’t called until 9:45. We stood on a very long line for another hour trying to get off the ship which took us thru the smokey casino. I tried to enjoy the casino during the cruise but if you are an asthmatic like me “stay away”

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

Cabin MB

Small to say the least. Location of TV was difficult to see from the bed. You definitely knew you were sleeping on 2 twin beds put together. Pillows were uncomfortable and my neck hurts. Bathroom was the only redeeming factor with large sink and very nice shower. Needed to be careful not to burn yourself with the immediate scalding hot water.
