Ship Quality
Large ship but there was very little waiting. Decor was bright and contemporary.
Food and Dining
The main dining room food was the best since our first cruise in 2003. The service was oustanding and very friendly. We had two lobster tails that were excellent and the filets and loin roasts were very good. Deserts were even awesome. The Chefs Art Steak House was totally worth the extra $35 per person\, but you had better be hungry. The buffet was good but nothing special and the hamburgers were below average.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our first balcony room and it was worth the extra cost. It was significantly larger than any room we have had before and it was well laid out.
Service and Staff
Housekeeping was outstanding. Every time we left for a couple of hours or more\, the rooom was tidied up\, and the used towels were replaced. The towel art and candies at night were a nice touch. They were also very freindly with smiling faces and greetings.
We enjoyed several shows in the main auditorium and the seating was ample. The singing couple in the main lobby was excellent most of the time\, and we spent a lot of time enjoying them. Kareokee was very popular and there were many other things too do day and night.The casino was the best of any ship we have been on so far.
