A great time on a great ship.

Sail Date: July 21, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We were on this ship in 1997, had a great time then and a great time now.
The ship has been updated since the first time.
Balcony Cabin at the rear was very nice. Staff on this ship are very friendly.
Our cabin attendant was excellent, our waiter was very good and the Maitre D'
was a riot. Plenty of entertainment in all the Lounges. Something happening all of the time. Plesently suprised how good the food was, in both the Lido Cafe and the Galaxy Dining Room. Sushi bar is a nice touch in the Casino. It seemed that most people on board had a good time.

Pros: Cleanliness, Entertainment and Food were all terrific.

Cons: Lines to get back on the ship in Key West.
