Dining was great, we had all five of the grandchildren at our table (3-14) Wei, and Andre the waiters made them napkin animals, took their orders and treated them as if they were the most special people on the cruise. The dining room entertainment was the absolute best, the man who sang each night was better than the show singers. The room attendants were fantastic. Our room was the hub for all the families (we had a family reunion on this boat). Our room was always clean and the attendant remembered my name from the first day on, he was also getting to know my grandchildren's names, they were there so often! Room service was excellent. Prompt, efficient, we once had a wrong order and the attendant went back and got the right order, did not complain, he seemed to take it as his personal responsibility to keep us happy. We used the pools and the slides (the children's water park was great also--you did not have to worry about your little ones drowning and there was always an attendant there.) Did not find it very crowded except on the self serve and then the lines moved fairly fast, we just started going to the dining room in the mornings and that worked out great. For the adults, the Red Frog Pub is not to be missed. The service and people are great and upbeat, a nice way to get away from all the crowds as it seemed almost as an intimate place to meet.
