Big ship lots to do but not enough staff. Especially at dinner service. For the most part the staff was not as friendly as you normally see on a cruise ship but I think it was because they were overworked. Felt nickeld and dimed for things too. Example the steam room which has been free on other boats had to be paid for here. I think it is a fun boat as long as you don't mind waiting. Also, Freeport Bahamas was a very dull port. Little to do.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Dining room food always great but the buffet line was lacking. Many things had no flavor or were bland.

Entertainment was lacking. We went to a whodunnit show expecting a murder mystery. Instead we got four people reading off cue cards. Very silly and seemed to be thrown together. The illusionist show was wonderful!!!
