I was pensive about the Pandimic regulations but was surprised at the ease and fluidity of the process from onboarding to debarkation. The lower occupancy rate led to a tremendous experience service wise. No lines, No waiting, Easy access to Dining and Entertainment, Casinos, Etc.

Staff was extremely friendly, Food was good, but limited offerings at buffet, I hesitate to call it "cruise lite", but the entertaiment was very good, on deck movies, no shortage of entertainment and shows. The Ice Skating Show (Freeze Frame) was tremendous, the excursions were very smooth and well executed.

Specialty restaurants were excellent and well staffed and the food was great. Room service was punctual, the food hot and delivery of the food right on time.

Cabin Review

I had an ocean view stateroom. Spacious, Amenities, the usual Phone, Safe, Mirror, Large bed. It was luxurious.
