We had a lively group of 15!  Cruise was much better than we expected.  Food in restaurant was very good and most entrees varied each night.  Not a big buffet person but plentiful there as well, especially fresh fruit.  Crew does a good job trying to keep all clean and in order.  Hot sandwiches in deli area and burgers are great!  Pizza, was not the best.  Cabin space was not bad and storage space in rooms was enough for a couple days away.  Stay close to elevators/stairs to save time.  Pools are very small but plenty of areas to sit and lay around.  Night movies were great to watch with nice breeze.  Adult area is nice and separate closer to top of ship.  Evening show is average and casino pays a little.  Some activities but not a whole lot to keep you very busy.  Spend some time in shop areas for daily sales and tea time was a nice touch with little sandwiches and mini dessert trays.  Seuss character breakfast was fun and colorful and a good break from the buffet line and a different touch from the sit down dining room.  Communication is a little difficult with some crew members but overall a great experience!  We will be returning again.

Sit down restaurant had good selections. Buffet was very busy but good selections. Hot deli sandwiches are good. Pizza not so great, could be better. Keep an eye on the open times for some of the food areas as they vary.

Good location close to adult pool area and elevators close to casino, lobby, and shops. Plenty of closet storage and lots of hangers. Additional shelf storage cabinet for folded clothes and small but plentiful shelves in restroom.

Ship Tip

Order case of water for $3.99 to be delivered to your room beforehand and stick in fridge for rest of trip. Bring Tumbler/Yeti type cup so you can refill on ice for the day or for your room. Buy the drink pass for the alcohol, way cheaper than buying separate drinks. Drinks are very good!!
