Additional details

Sail Date: Jul 2019
Cabin: Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony
Traveled with children

Chosen by another family who was trying to please everyone. It didn't have the entertainment or on-board activities I would have expected. Overall the ship was more for younger couples or families with children than for seniors.

Ship was very loud and crowded. Long narrow hallway to room was always blocked with cleaning carts and equipment. Few shows that had to be reserved went very quickly, and they let people in after show had started, interrupting those seated near the back. Specialty dining was overall a good experience though we could not get our first choice in restaurants. Buffet had good food selection, but it was crowded and difficult finding indoor table at times.

Teenagers joined the teen club but never went there. They didn't use the pool, water slide or other amenities on top deck. Not sure what they did except go to fitness gym and out for late night ice cream and snacks.
