Sail Date: Jul 2022
Cabin: Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony


Off to a challenging start. IT problems. Many room keys not working even after being reprogrammed. Drinks package not working on some cards. Lines for guest services backed up for hours. Some key cards needed to be reprogrammed 3 times or more. Some guests not linked with credit card of primary guest even though we checked in online and imputed all this information. It was a rocky start for the first day and part of the second. We were a family of 11 (ages 6-80) with 5 cabins. Only the key cards for 2 cabins worked initially.

Food: We ate at Taste and Savor most of the time. Especially enjoyed lunch there as it was less crowded. The staff are extremely pleasant. Dinner could take longer as staff were harried handling both drink orders and food. We started getting a drink at the Mixx bar outside the restaurants to take in with us. Food varied in quality but on the whole was good. Appetizers and salads very good. Some of the beef dishes a bit tough.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

A club class balcony. Same size as a balcony with very nice bathroom. Bed and pillows comfortable. Tiny balcony.
