Ship Quality
Some outdated materials but very clean and well kept.
Food and Dining
Very good. Desserts were wonderful. Main courses were good. Liked lobster tail night the best.
Cabin / Stateroom
Very nice. Small but that's what you get when you reserve an oceanview stateroom. We were located midship on the upper deck so it was very convenient to everything. Quiet hall which was very nice.
Service and Staff
Very friendly. Especially the porters and room service wait staff. We had room service for breakfast the two mornings we had shore excursions. I tipped the waiter $5 each morning after fumbling through my wallet in the dark. The second day the waiter knocked on my door about 30 minutes after delivering and said I had given him a $50! I certainly had not intended to do that. I did tip him handsomely for bringing the $50 back but felt that was a great example of the staff going above and beyond.
I did the art auction\, Played bingo\, visited the spa and watched the NCAA football playoffs. I didn't do any night activities. Bingo was kind of boring. The spa\, although very expensive\, was FABULOUS.
Children's Programs
My son was involved in the 02 program which he did not discover until the last two nights. When I asked him what his favorite thing was on the Cruise\, he said it was the O2 club so it must have made a great impression on him.
