Sail Date: Apr 2022
Cabin:

We liked the itinerary, so we went ahead and booked it. We regret our decision as our previous experience on a cruise was a Oasis class RC ship, which has WAY more stuff to do. Almost all the shows were cancelled (including the two main shows) and the included food was borderline awful. Simply put, we got bored and regret this sailing. The vibe we got is this was more of a booze-cruise where everyone was drinking and dancing. Not really our cup of tea. We are more in to shows and activities. There's only so much trivia games a person can take.

Surely it would have been better with less activities being cancelled, but the lack of things to do overall makes 1 or 2 cancellations that much worse. We will personally avoid this ship and cannot recommend it whatsoever to anyone outside of heavy drinkers with low expectations.
