Had a fly land in my drink. Rather than remove the glass, was served another drink, albeit in a dirty glass. Ship TVs are old and blurry, the kind you'd find from a Vegas hotel auction or flea market. Lido deck TV images look like you were watching a king fu movie (no audio/video sync). Lines for food were long and slow. Furniture from IKEA was more comfortable than what they had on the ship. Decor was stolen and recycled from the movie set of The Chronicles of Riddick and Posedin and created by committee (like the Pontiac Aztek). Lots of room service dishware left in the halls. Late night pizza station seemed like it was run by angry teenagers- food quality was terrible as was the service. Checkout was a 4+ hour disaster with people checking in as we were checking out. no one could really make sense of what was going on.

Pros: Excursions were the best- swimming with dolphins & turtles, ziplines and great shopping
Cons: Food and shipboard TVs were rubbish; staff unfriendly; checkout was disaster area
