Boring entertainment- won’t use again by wmojica

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

It was okay but there is not enough entertainment- roaming around between 6-10pm. Mama Mia is 2:30 hrs and put many people to sleep

It was a great trip by shepwoda

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was a new experience for us. We never were on a Big Super Ship. You do not know there are 6000 people on the ship. It was a great trip and we would do this ship again. the on board shopping needs some help. The store selection needs improvement.

Central Park has a great cafe that during lunch allows you to make your own salad. I wish I would have known this earlier. It is also not nearly as crowded as other places on the ship.

Use the interactive touch screens on the ship on each deck to find your way around. Interactive TV in the stateroom is very helpful, You can even order room service. The windjammer don't do omelet's, try Johnny Rockets or the Wipe out café. Go to all the shows , Blue Planet was awesome.
