Review SummaryThe ship was beautiful...grand seems an appropriate word. The bright and flashing lights, beautiful staircases, and wall decor were more spectacular than I'd imagined. The galleries were so varied, there was always a new experience waiting. The main dining room was beautifully exquisite with service unlike anything I'd ever experienced. The buffet areas with their less formal atmosphere especially appealed to my family, and the food was varied, a very pleasureable experience. The pools and hot tubs were bigger and better than I'd imagined would be available on a ship. Our first cruise experience was definitely a positive one. Within a couple of days being home we began talking about, "next time......"

Pros: Variety of entertainment, variety of dining opportunities and the ability to participate when and where I wanted to.
Cons: We are not drinkers (alcohol), so some of the evening gatherings on the Lido deck were less enjoyable than I'd hoped for.
