awesome ship but...

it is the biggest ship on the ocean so definite worth to be on it.  all the entertainments and most of the services were great.  but there are few things to mention.  the first port of call was bahamas and the ship docked early in the morning and took off to sail ealy that afternoon which mean the guests only have the morning hours to do the excursion.  this did not give much of choice in doing anything due to earlier hours and the weather is not warm enough to do any water activities.  wasted that visit to the port.  photographers were not great either.  although there were more than five thousand guests onboard, the line to take pictures were not long.  but the photographers were so rushed to get to the next group that they did not take time in creating the memories.  many pictures were taken off centered and did not allowed peopled to take time to pose.  wasted my time, effort, and memories.  lastly, do not dine at samba grill.  this is brazilian steak house so people go there for the steak, all you can eat.  but they were very dictating on how you were to eat.  they would not serve meat until the guests are done with appetizers and salads.  after you are done with these, who has room in the stomach for meat!  not worth the money.  don't go there.

make sure you reserve all the activities and shows before sailing. or you may have to wait in the line for them. this includes all the shows and dining.
