Sail Date: March 19, 2012

Ship was clean and easy to navigate. Decor is outdated. Pool deck needs more chaise lounge chairs.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Wait staff in Freestyle dining were awesome! Remembered us in other areas of the ship by name and our preferences. We were able to eat from a variety of options throughout the day (and night).


3 out of 5
The first couple of nights the comedians were not very funny - at either the kid-friendly or adult only shows. The comedy on the last night was better. There was a variety of options for entertainment, and we enjoyed the variety of trivia. Did not appreciate when trivia was cancelled and the "Fun Force" was brought out -- there is only so much break-dancing a person wants to see. Too much time (40 minutes) was given to sell tickets for the last bingo/drawing for free cruise and credit on bar-bill. Could have provided entertainment (singers??) while we waited.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
George, our room steward, was great about servicing our room around our crazy hours. All staff was helpful and friendly. Our wait staff in the dining room, Noel, Gairy and Anderson, were very polite and humored our antics as we enjoyed our dinner every night. They were very attentive and brought us our requests promptly.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Room size, condition, and amenties were great, but the decor needs to be updated. Beds were very comfortable.

Pros: Friendly, helpful staff.

Cons: The "Fun Force" showing up when there were supposed to be other activities.
