Food is fine.  Not 5 star but this boat had lots of variety all day plus a grill for burgers and dogs and pizza all the time.  The buffet was open with great breakfast choices and a omlette station.  Lunch was good variety.  Plenty of chairs to sun yourself, no need to fight for a good spot.  Needs more entertainment. At night they had a show every other night.  It should be every night.  Comedians were only ther one night that should/could be a little more also.

Needs a little fridge We had that in other staterooms on other ships. and some more storage for 4 people

Ship Tip

Have them take all your bags so you can stay on ship longer during embarkation day. Arrive real early boarding day they say 1pm but really start loading at about 11am to 11:30am

Confusing parking situation. Plan ahead so you know where you are going. Apple maps could not get us to port.

Cabs are prepriced for all destinations which is nice. No one really hassells you. They are selling but not as bad as cancun or Nassau bahammas.
