Review summary

Very nice ship. New adults only area on deck 9 aft. Great new waterpark area with two waterslides for kids. Gym and spa are top-notch. 3 different decks suited for walking or jogging exercise. Great on-board entertainment with numerous options. A lot of art on this ship, much of it overlooked by most people. Multi-level main showroom. All the amenities we look for on a cruise.

Elegant two-level main dining room. Good menu selections. We opted for the "Your Time" open seating on the uppper level and never had to wait more than 15 minutes for a table. Buffet restaurant on deck 9 has numerous specialty counters that help keep the lines short.
