This was a pleasant cruise, but not great.  The destinations were lame, but we went mostly because of the hype of the ship.  Unfortunately, we didn't get to experience most of the amenities of the ship because... either there no reservations available or the lines were too long during the open times.  Dinner reservations were difficult to get at normal dining times so we ate mostly at 9:30pm.   Nonetheless, the ship is beautiful, but lacked that Royal Caribbean feel (for those of you who have sailed with RC before you will understand)!  Except for the specialty restaurants, the food was disappointing.. most meals were overcooked and were not served hot.   The service was exceptional as you would expect except for a few staff members with some attitude!  The one feature that I would have loved changed was to have the ability to make reservations from your room tv... lt was so inconvenient to have to find a kiosk!!!!!!

As you would expect... the cabin service was fine and attentive, but they could have changed the sheets more often...
