Overall a very nice experience for this family, parents, two college-aged girls. Took in all the entertainment, comedy, magic and Broadway-style shows. Some talented folks on board! including Matt, Desiree and especially Ty Nelson, the lounge singer. Food in Paris dining room was excellent, great heart-healthy options. Lido deck cafeteria-style not so much, too crowded and slow-moving at times. Hated seeing all that wasted food!!
Not too many college-aged kids on board, so the night club was always semi-deserted for my two to enjoy, but there were enough other late night shows.
Gym was-well equipped, service was excellent all around from crew and staff, especially from housekeeping and dining room.
Loved the balcony rooms we had at back (aft) of ship.
