This was my husband's and my first cruise and we had high expectations. We were not let down. 

The ship's décor is a bit out-dated, but this was such a minimal detail compared to the positive things we enjoyed.

We stuck to the PG rated comedy show and it was very funny. Highly recommend, however; you may not want to sit in the front row if you don't want to like attention. :)

We ate our dinners in the Ecstasy Dining Room. Each meal was excellent with plenty of delicious options to choose from.  Our waiter was Nego and he did a superb job!  He was even able to provide me with one of the recipes (had it printed out for me) that my husband had eaten the night before.  Thanks for this!

The wait staff puts on a show each night after dinner. They made it very fun for everyone, either singing to their guest or dancing.  I don't know how they produce so much energy every night!

The pool was very nice and there are plenty of lounge chairs through-out the decks of the ship.

Drinks are super yummy and the drink-servers (while you're soaking up the sun) were not only friendly, they remembered what we had to drink the night before! This is pretty good, with as many people as they serve each day.

The rooms are comfy and clean.  We stayed in a balcony suite. It was worth the money.  We will always remember the beautiful moonlight while we sat on our private balcony and listened to the waves lapping against the ship. The sunrises are beautiful while drinking your coffee and eating a fresh croissant as well! Room service!

Lots to do for children.  We will definitely bring our son next time.

We can't wait to do it again next year!

No complaints about balcony room. Clean, comfy. Loved the towel-characters that we had waiting for us each night after dinner.


If you use the Cheers program, the offer is charged for each person 21 and over staying in your room. So, if you have someone with you that does not drink, the only way that person will not be charged and only one of the people in the room uses it, you have to bring a Dr's letter explaining.
