All in all, the cruise was great for a New Year's activity. The entertainment was much better than on the Valor last year, and we had plenty to do and very good food. The only problems we had were the dining room service and the mattresses. In the Chic Dining Room (Your time dining) service took forever and we had several meals that lasted more than 2 hours (not by our choice). Our mattresses were one step down from a board, and I couldn't get a decent night's sleep all week. The only other issue we had was that upon arrival, our bathroom smelled like someone urinated on the floor, but I am convinced that one of the floor drains may have dried out, and after we added some water and the room steward "snuggle'd" our bathroom, it was fine the rest of the cruise.
