Ok so my grandparents took me on this cruise ship and I wasn’t so sure if it would be a good experience. Legitimately right as we stepped foot on the ship we were greeted by so many polite staff members. This one man, John who was the person that cleaned our room, did a phenomenal job at socializing with me, answering questions I had about his experience and the awesome things that I would do, and also making the cabin super clean and cozy. He really made me feel at home and it really shows how awesome the staff are on this ship. That’s just one crew member out of a thousand. A fantastic part of the cruise in my opinion as a teenager was the all you can eat ice cream that was worked by very kind and patient women who by the end of the trip knew my order when they saw me walking up to them. Continuing the food topic, the buffet serves breakfast which was filled with a huge variety of delicious foods like Belgian waffles, pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, cereal, and lots of fancy stuff that I don’t remember the names of. Then when it was time for lunch the buffet would always surprise us with different things every single day. Now I know what your thinking, maybe all you can eat food that you can have any time you want, might not be your favorite, which is why I’d like to inform you that they had a pizza place where they hand made pizza of your choice and an area where you can order a burger with some fries. Moving to dinner, there was several places we could go to eat that all had amazing food and awesome waiters and waitress. I can’t remember his name, but this one waiter did magic tricks which entertained my family as we ate delicious food. I’m going to save the dessert for you to explore for yourself, but all I want to say Is that you should order the chocolate journey dessert because it tasted better than my words could describe it. Aside from eating tons of food, I would go to one of the pools. To be honest, I’m not sure how many there were, but it felt like a lot. I’d also go to the teen room which was an area I could socialize with other teens which helped me to have a gooOoOoooOD Time! I’d also go to the magic acts, and the comedian shows which were both totally awesome. There was also a “The Voice” competition that was held where people would sing and try to win the grand prize, which was fantastic to say the least. My dad actually made it into the finals and sang “The Summer of 69” by Bryan Adams which had the crowd cheering which was kind of weird to be experiencing as his son. There was also a game called The High Seas Heist which was basically a huge game of clue that you really needed to use brain power to figure it out. We also made 3 stops and a tour on the boat where we watched parts of glaciers fall off and make huge splashed which amazed everyone. We also did whale watching which required lots of patience, but ended up being so beautiful to see. One minor detail that I realized would be the maps that were placed around everywhere which helped me a lot when trying to find my way around. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I walked into the cruise ship expecting nothing to be fun for me, but walked out literally hugging and high-fiving the crew because of how much enjoyment they gave me. This ship has made me into a new person and I can’t wait to go back for another cruise very soon! Thanks for reading this through, make sure to have a Goooood Time!

Cabin Review

Interior
Cabin ID D107
My cabin number, D107 which was cleaned by a man named John was a great place where I truly felt at home. John was like a living walking Siri who I could ask anything an he was there to answer it. John didn’t seem to care if he was seen for what he did, which showed the integrity he maintained while working. I think that if anyone deserves some recognition it should be him because he made my cruise a thousand times better. In the cabin we had our beds, a bathroom, a closet and a television which I’d watch movies on every night.
