The food, service, entertainment, and ports were great. The only downside was that the entertainment was always in the lobby, and casino. If you wanted to enjoy listening or dancing you had to arrive an hour early to get a seat, so most of the time we had to stand with a hundred other standing guests. Why they don't put their bands in one of their huge bars I'll never know. That's the way they used to do it. They had a wonderful guitarist in the smoke-filled casino, so therefore we never stayed to listen to her. The comedians were great too, but it was always standing room only. They should have them in the theater so everyone could attend.
We did anytime dining. They used to let you make daily dinner reservations, now you stand in line and get a beeper. We waited an hour and a half to eat one evening, so following that we showed up early to eat. Anytime dining became early dining for us, so I'm not sure it really is anytime dining. It's eat early or stand in line and wait for an hour dining.
The ship is looking worse for wear, but very clean.
