Not great, waiters and photographers were intrusive and aggressive, had to be told multiple times. Pool is tiny and cold only one pool one hot tub didn't work the first day and the other was cold on second day. Dining room was awful, rolls were hard, fruit not ripe as 's lasagna looked like cat food. We walked out and ate at the grill the rest of the trip. We went to play laser tag and found out that it cost us ten dollars for five minutes with no mention of any fee in activities paper. Even our safe didn't work sand required four separate visits before it worked. One nice touch was upon returning from Nassau there was a dj playing outside the ship with complimentary cups of ice cold water.

Safe didn't work until several repair attempts, could smell smoke the entire time on Riviera deck.
