We paid extra for the Fast to the Fun experience and went right on the ship and to our room.

Food and Dining

The buffet food was not what I expected. We paid extra for the steakhouse (first seating of the first night) but the lobster was touch and the steak was not tender. The next night we ate at the main dining room. The salad was soggy and the steak was filled with gristle. The last night I had salmon and it was wonderful. For the brunch, fresh pressed juices were offered for $5. They were wonderful and well worth the price.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
The 21+ area and the 18+ areas were awesome. There was a large selection of onboard activities.

Wow ... The musical show needs work. The singers/soloists were off key during many songs. The comedian was not funny and many people walked out of the show. I stayed as I felt it was rude to walk out. During the child-friendly show, he did one joke and the rest was failed magic tricks. I was embarrassed for him.

Children's Programs

The child that accompanied me was 27!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Since I had an Onion allergy ... yes that is a thing and probably why I hated the buffet as no one could tell me how many of the dishes were cooked when I asked. Our waiter in the MDR, Oscar, was wonderful and funny. He took the time to check on my dishes for me and recommend items to stay away from. The activity staff was great and since we attended a lot of the activities, we were recognized and acknowledged. The staff made me feel special

Ship Quality

They need walls on the Casino. We had to walk by many times to get to activities or the Silver Dining Room and had to hold our breath.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The Ocean Suite cabin was a nice size and we were happy with the dressing area before the bathroom. However, someone's dirty underwear was left on the floor by the couch and there was makeup and lipstick on our pillow case. I guess Fast to the Fun with a quick room change does not give the stewards amply time to clean.

Ports of call

Nassau, Bahamas

It is always nice to walk the shop area.
