This was an anniversary trip and 2nd cruise. There seemed to be a lot of children on this cruise. The later night activities we expected to be more for adults, but they were not. There was very little Adult only entertainment which was somewhat disappointing. The buffet, beverage, ice cream areas need to be assessed so that people aren't standing in lines and meeting in the middle - would get very irritating. The 24 hour food selection is very limited - ice cream and pizza is not something all people want available 24 hours a day. It would have been nice to have fruit and vegetable available any time.
We had a stateroom with a balcony which was very nice. The food was average. Waitstaff in the dining room were very personable and the entertainment of them singing and dancing was fun. We didn't eat at any specialty restaurants and was not aware that the Italian restaurant was included in the price of the meals during lunch until the last night of our cruise.
The price was exceptional and we enjoyed being away from our normal hustle and bustle.
