Ship and facilities were very nice and well maintained.  The crew was awesome especially our personal steward and plenty of activities to keep you busy.  Unfortunately we chose to cruise the week of Thanksgiving not realizing the ship would be full of children.  The pools and hot tubs were overflowing with kids; no designated ones for adults except one hot tub at forward end of boat. Water in hot tubs dirty and not hot.  Lines for casual dining were long and had to wait sometimes as long as 30 minutes to eat.  Food was good and plenty but not as good as some other cruise ships.  Weather did not cooperate with us either and we missed one of three ports which was also a disappointment.  So all in all I would say just an average cruise on a very large ship.
