As soon as we got on board vacation began. The ship seemed like Las Vegas on steroids with the over the top decor but was fun and entertaining. There were plenty of activities for all, even though the large screen on deck did not show movies this week, only Olympics. The food was very good and never in short supply. In the dining rooms the portions were very appropriate so I never felt stuffed, very nicely presented and very interesting. The help on board was the best. From our wonderful cabin steward - shout out to Felix!, to some humorous and attentive waiters - yay Antonio and Anthony (Tony the tiger), the addressed us by our names and never ceased to smile. One highlight was when they began to dance on the tables at dinner - took us totally by surprise. Unfortunately, three days into the trip a stomach bug began going around the ship. Passengers were notified via the PA system of the occurrence and were reminded throughout the day to carefully wash hands. Unfortunately, by the end of day 4 I caught the bug in the middle of the night. The night nurse attended to me more than promptly but I had to spend the entire next day in isolation in my cabin. Believe me - I couldn't go out if I had wanted to! I don't know how wide-spread the illness was. I was the only one in my party to get it but the others said there were many \"snoozin' \" tags hanging on cabins the last day. Never-the-less, I'd take this cruise again and would highly recommend it. I enjoyed every minute that I physically was able to and the good memories far outnumber a bad illness. :)
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Pros: The staff was absolutely amazing\, helpful\, entertaining\, friendly and went out of their way to make us feel more than at home!
Cons: the stomach virus that went around and that I caught :( BUT there was very good communication as soon as it began to notify passangers about safety precautions. Nothing seemed to be hidden.
