Dinner was so good every single night in the dining room. Lido buffet was ehh. Deli was bomb. Indian food was ok. Pizza was good. Chefs table was worth every penny.

Went smoothly for us since we had faster to the fun. Had breakfast and made it out of the ship pretty quickly. Customs took a bit longer. But while walking out of the ship, we passed by tons of people waiting to disembark.
