Ship size was smaller than expected but layout was good. Very clean. Very attentive staff.

Stateroom steward was great, kept room clean and stocked with plenty of towels, pillows, ice and knew us by names. Our room was on the Empress and was central to the main area which was nice.

Pros: Friendly staff from around the world

Cons: Cost of adult beverages
