service and food in main dining room was quite good and service was exceptional. food in buffets was average and to be avoided when possible. pools were smaller than expected and too crowded -- particularly on at sea days. some of the days in port were too short. excursions were good, but some less than advertised. most shows were mediocre to average. staterooms were comfortable and service there very good as well. we had a problem with our stateroom smelling of smoke when we arrived. they promptly dealt with it, checked back to make sure we were satisfied, and sent a bottle of champagne for our troubles. we booked through cruiseonly and they gave us some incorrect information about our reservations, that were easily corrected at the ships information desk.

the excursion through the rain forest to 2 falls was worth the work

we did the ocean racing which was a lot of fun, but half the time advertised and very expensive
