Sail Date: Mar 2022
Cabin: Ocean View

We chose this for the price and itinerary. Balcony room comfortable. We had the partition removed between our room and friends making for a spacious sitting area we all enjoyed. I had heard complaints about the ship pitching and rolling but everything mild so far. Ship well kept. Food in dining room slower than other cruises but delicious and attractively served. We are a mostly vegetarian group and there were creative choices. Staff friendly and eager to serve. I have a friend in a wheelchair and staff helped her numerous times. Buffet good but often lines. Dining room much more pleasant. Went to a tea in dining room and it was lovely too. Entertainment better than average. Do not see any dress codes enforced. A lady wearing a thong in programs and flip flops and short shorts in dining room.

Attended health lecture and decided to sign up for a fat assessment test for $39 by personal trainer. Test was weak and session was for promotion for a fat burning program almost $2000. I was charged $39, the cruise tacked on a $7 gratuity and I was to give the personal trainer a gratuity also. Felt taken.

Others complained seminars by spa were also to sell products. Beware seminars are disguised as educational but meant to take your hard earned money.
