Show trip route
The dinning main room was divided throughout 3 floors, on deck 5 there was a "promenade" with shops and bars and was very lively the whole day. On deck 11 it has the buffet restaurant (where we did all breakfasts and lunch on the ship) usually very crowded. Food overall was good with ample variety and free teas and lemonades.
Shows: Big theater with nightly shows (average guest performers and great own production shows) and an ice skating ring with a great production show as well.
Sports: the gym was always crowded (which surprised me) and the machines showed a lot of wear. The climbing rock wall is interesting but just a 2 minutes novelty
Pools: Very small and contained more chlorine than water. On the other hand plenty of sun chairs available, unusual considering the amount of people.
Service: As friendly and attentive as it gets.
Shops: They had very good prices, better than in many islands.
Arcades: Disappointingly vs. Norwegian's you had to pay for them.
Our stateroom was an exterior one on deck 2. Nice despite some wear and tear and very quiet.
