Review summary

Beautiful ship, attentive crew.  Loved the spa and spa crew.  Was disappointed with the shopping, however.  Too many high end stores, and no standard souvenier or clothing shops.  Not enough crew members on board either.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was very good except for the morning eggs. Hated the powdered eggs. They were runny, mushy and tasted awful! Most foods were very good, however.

Onboard Activities

Again, mostly sold out. Was unable to participate and disappointed that they do not accommodate all guests for all rides...

Most activities were sold out when we arrived. it is ridiculous that the ship does not accommodate every guest for offered activities. Bottom line, i was unable to participate in any of the entertainment other than shows.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
Lines are too long. Bumper cars are great but when you have to wait 1 1/2 hrs for a 2 minute ride, it's not worth it. yet it is the ride the kids want.
