Review summary

2nd cruise for this big beautiful ship so was super clean with terrific staff. The ship was well equiped, great gym facilities and if you are willing to pay the price the spa was top notch. More hot tubs than other ships we have been on. Of course the down side was more people.

Cabin / Stateroom

We enjoyed our stateroom, paid extra for the balcony and were surprised when we compared with an oceanview room (priced less) that had more closet space and 2 bathroom spaces.
