Good value

Sail Date: February 08, 2014

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

Had priority boarding and it could not have gone more smoothly. Stayed in a Grand Suite (7298). Cabin was large with incredible storage and lots of room including a whirlpool tub and shower. However, few amenities like on other ships such as free laundry, upgraded bath amenities, evening appetizers, etc. Housekeeping was a ten. Crew was very friendly and helpful. Entertainment was OK. A couple of good shows with others average. A fair amount of entertainment depended of karaoke from passengers. Some comedy shows good, others just OK. Overall, would have to say other lines are better. Food was good.  but not great. Buffet lines moved quickly. No long waits. Dining room food was good some nights and just OK on others. Service was very good though. Ate in Steak House twice. Service was superb and food very good but not great given the extra fee paid. Disembarkation was self assist and was very quick and easy. Overall, a good cruise with good value but few extras to make it special.
