Overall\, we were very happy with our entire trip from start to finish. The staff made us feel very cared for and we never went without anything we needed or wanted. We got aboard early and relaxed on the serenity deck most of our first afternoon. Ariel was very pleasant and laughed and joked with us and served us as needed. After reading some reviews I was concerned\, but in my experience\, some people complain about everything as a hobby. This was a great\, relaxing\, pampered vacation. I slept\, partied and enjoyed the Pacific for four days for a great price. I will be going again soon.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Dinners were very good\, lobster\, roast beef\, vegetables that were fresh\, excellent service. Options were good. The buffet was pretty standard\, well layed out and good quality. The grill by the pool was standard fare\, hamburgers\, hotdogs\, carving station. No complaints.

Saw Styx and that was perfect. Otherwise the comedian was good\, show could have been longer. The rock and roll disco was a bit crazy for us\, but we toughed it out and danced for a while.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Fantastic. Always felt cared for. Everyone acknowledges you\, many by name...Ariel in the Serenity area was great as was Rafi. The pizza guy was kind of a dufus\, but he was nice.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Clean\, easy to navigate. Uncrowded. Always somewhere to sit or lounge.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Comfortable bed\, great window\, clean. TV worked well. Bathroom was small but adequate.

Pros: Service\, variety\, cleanliness.

Cons: Fun Saver Book\, don't waste $24 dollars\, most of the stuff is for other cruises and the stores are hard to find.
