Ship Quality
Ship was very clean. Staff very quick to bus tables and clean in dining areas. Plenty of room for lounging on decks and seating outside. Decor was a little dated\, but in good shape and clean.
Food and Dining
Food was very good and plentiful. The best option for evening meals is for dining room seating. The staff in the ecstasy dining room was super nice and accommodating to special requests. I was there for an anniversary and the waiters even brought candle in my dessert and sang to us. Very professional wait staff. The buffet lines on decks for breakfast and lunch had enough variety and lines move smoothly. The Mongolian grill and the hamburger girill did have long waits during peak hours.
Cabin / Stateroom
Stateroom was very comfortable and roomy. I had a king size bed that was very comfortable. Room was very clean and had enough closet/drawer storage. The bathroom was large enough and I liked the detachable shower head.
Service and Staff
All staff in ship were very friendly and willing to help. Our waiter in the ecstasy dining room\, Mario\, was superb. He remembered each persons name at the table and even our drink selections. Brought us a candle in our dessert and sang happy anniversary to us as well.
There were plenty of activities on board. We went to see a magic show\, karaoke\, comedy routine.
Children's Programs
We didn't take any children but most were occupied with the kids program offered on board.
