Sail Date: Oct 2022

First the pros; the show, the Million Dollar Quartet was really good. The staff was mostly friendly and helpful and the ship was very clean and modern. There are small dining rooms that are included which was nice. We only ate in the main dining room once. They had full-service lunch each day so you didn't have to eat at the buffet.

Now the cons; The layout of the ship was terrible, we were in the furthest cabin in the front of the ship and there were only elevators in the center and the back of the ship. Many of the shows were in very small venues that would only hold a couple hundred people with seating for maybe 100. The venue was called Syd Norman’s Pour House that had shows like Tribute to Rumors" which we could not get into and another rock and roll show that we stood in line for over an hour just to get standing room. These shows should be in a venue that everyone who wants to see them, can. On a ship that holds 4,500 plus people and was only 60% full, when you still can’t get into shows is unacceptable.

There was not a lot going on at any time during the cruise, some music by the pool when weather permitted and some trivia a couple of times during the day, but not a lot else. I never saw waves in the “wave pool” which by the way is one of only two swimming pools on this very large ship which also only has 6 hot tubs.

Cabin Review

Very, very small, but clean.
