Nothing bad, but some things could be better: 1) outside tables weren't cleaned up fast enough, and since they are in limited supply (even on this big ship), people have to clean them to find a place to eat. 2) lots of activities, but being an older person, not interested in 90% of them. Would like more ballroom dancing lessons/activities 3) room service wasn't what I expected. They only have sandwiches. 4) I don't know if there is 24hr room steward service, but frequently when I called late, there was no response 5) Pride dining room only had lobster one night. Would have liked it as an option at least two nights. Perhaps they had it the first night, but I missed that night. 6) the pool and whirlpools are very small.
Good stuff: generally very good food, both in the buffet areas and in the Pride restaurant. Enjoyed the cruise and will definately go again.
