This was my first cruise and I was very apprehensive about getting seasick. I booked a cabin with a balcony which helped. The ship was very nice\, clean and the staff from the hostesses to the dinner/cleaning crew were so friendly and helpful. Amazing. In the dining room I always could order some gourmet-ish healthy food instead of having to overindulge at the (very nice) buffet on the Lido deck. One can definitely eat healthy on the ship:)

Food and Dining

It was nice to have a regular menu and the the daily specials which were very good. We really appreciated having our table for two.

The juggler was terrific but the 80's show was horrbly loud. Was hoping for some more \"broadway\" shows. The movies shown we'd already seen in theaters.

Service and Staff

Dennie and his dinner crew were the nicest and really treated us like royalty. Dragana Sinik was the nicest helpful hostess ever.

Our room was always cleaned at the blink of an eye. We went down for breakfast and when we got back our cabin was back to sparkling clean.

Pros: The food and the friendly dining crew.

Cons: Disembarcation. Non US-Citizins 1 hr later than others = missed flights.
