Review summary

Had a great time. Well worth it. Bartenders need more training. Too many variations of the same drink. Last 5 cruises wre Carnival. I think the beds are more comfortable and the main dining room is better, the RC Entertainment is far above the others.

We purchased the "KEY". Got on right away and had a private lunch.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
We were 4 of us. Originally had us as 2 tables of 2 in 2 different dining rooms. Took 2 days to correct. Main dining room food only ok. Service was rushed for our eating style. We no sooner finished 1 course and the next was put down. All specialty restaurants were fantastic. Wanted to have lunch at Sushi restaurant and they had a "Roll your own class" during lunch basically shutting down the restaurant. Should have been after lunch hours.

Onboard Activities

They really need to enforce the 30 minute rule on blocking loungers by the pools.

The best quality of entertainment over any other cruise line we've been on.

Very nice & roomy. Balcony a good size for 2 people. Bed & pillows too firm for our comfort.
