We really enjoyed this cruise!  Suite was wonderful, our service by our cabin steward was impeccable as was the service at dinner.  All the staff was smiling, courteous, and over the top helpful.  This is saying something coming from a former Disney employee.  On the down side, the food was just OK.  If you are going for the food think again. Powdered eggs at breakfast buffet, dinner selections (meh) pedestrian (fried chicken, meatloaf?, really?) unless you pony up $20 per person per night for steak or lobster.  No longer have grand midnight buffet.  Lots of changes in 25 years.
