Sail Date: Oct 2022
Cabin: Spacious Ocean View Balcony

Cruise was just the wife and me. We booked a guaranteed balcony. We got our room assigned about 3 weeks before sailing. We got room 6338. This turned out to be the largest balcony room we have had. Plenty of room. The balcony does have the steel on lower part, but this didn't really brother us at all. The ship is showing it age in parts, but overall, in decent shape. We also found the ship very easy to get around.

The room was excellent wherever we ate. We did the main dining, the Italian place and Chops, all great. Windjammer also was great, nice selection. This was our fourth cruise since last October and it was the first full ship we have had since covid. The staffing seems back to full staff, no delays getting food or drinks.

Entertainment was spotty, some we enjoyed some we didn't. Just because we didn't care for it, doesn't mean it was bad, just not our taste. The main theater shows were a little aged and dull. All the bands solo artists in the bars were great.

Cabin Review

Spacious Ocean View Balcony

Large room, plenty of space. Shower seemed a little bigger than normal. Nice balcony, no glass on bottom half, metal instead. 2 chairs and table.
