This was a very enjoyable experience for my wife and me. This was a perfect First Cruise and we were able to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary.
The food was great and we never really felt crowded, or rushed, at dinner. We had the all inclusive drink plan, which was fine, but we did get tired of signing for every single drink...even though the balance was always $0. There were plenty of gratuities included and given, so I would have preferred to just order a drink and get one.
The pool area got crowded quickly, but as long as we got chairs early enough, we had no issues all weekend.
Very pleased with the staff & will likely use them again in the future.

We had high anticipations for the shows and were underwhelmed.
