I am giving it 3 stars even though a few things need to be fine tuned. First,w e were not assigned a room until the morning of the cruise which was nerve wracking because we didn't know where our bags were going to end up. The fun days at sea were too long as we cruised in circles around the Bahamas. we couldn't go to cast a way cay because of sea swells. The ship has a very small pool and the hot tub was filled to the brim so we couldn't get in it. The decks were filled during movie nites and we need more monitors in the places you can"t see the big screen. The food was good except for the Italian Place which was very bad and needs a total overhaul as far as the menu goes. The sauce sucked and you should do some research at our favorite place called Pasquilino's in Irwin, Pa. They have the best sauce and angel hair too. As we were traveling as a couple we did not use the water place on the roof. We used the spa and felt like we were over charged as the price when we booked it as the special was about 100 more when we checked out. We did use the casino, or it used us BUT my husband HATES smoking and it is all in there so we can use a non smoking section or no smoking at all.
