  • "Good service & convenient"

    Found all locations on board clean and well kept. Plenty of services and activities to stay active, distracted or resting. The wifi worked better than expected for business purposes. There are plenty of seats but was difficult to find a comfortable area to get a quick nap or sit comfortable for too long.
