Overall, we had a good time. We paid extra for priority embarkation and disembarkation. Definitely worth the cost. The ship is absolutely wonderful. It is new and in great shape. The state room was immaculate and the cabin steward was very accommodating. There were not a lot of kids on this cruise which was nice. The biggest drawback is the amount of pool and deck space available to guests. One third of the deck space is closed off to regular guests because of the private Vibe Beach Club. This is available for a significant additional cost. The cruise was already pricey, this should be available to all Lattitude members without additional cost. The bar service staff was almost non-existent unless you were lucky enough to get chairs around the pool. A wait of 15 minutes at the bar for drinks was not unusual. All of the food on board was excellent. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. The shows were great. A lot of talent with the performers and very engaging. Would see them all again.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom
Cabin BF
The cabins are nicely decorated. There is plenty of room for 2 guests. The bed is amazingly comfortable. The balcony is a great feature also.
