this was my fifth cruise............overall i had a nice time....met new people and had fun in the activities............i guess ill do a break down

pool: pools were the smallest i had seen on a cruise and since i went in the summer there were lots of kids and they kept jumpin in.....annoying.....waterslide was fun!

entertainment: most of the time there was something fun to do!!! trivia games were fun, love and marraige was hilarious, quest was good, club was great allmost every night, there could have been more nightlife options, so the club doesnt get boring as two nights it did....deck party was SHORT...By time my mom got dressed and we got out there it was over!!!!! missed the whole thing......comedy at night was hilarious!!! loved it!!

food: ive had better on other cruises, buffet was day 2 i was tired of the burger and hot dog line....thank god for the elegant dining which was average but food was good and the deli like.....there was a chinese station that was only open for 2 hours a day....what????? missed that as well.......

service: service could have been better, wasnt many people going around askin if u wanted a drink which i have experienced alot more on other ships and cruiselines...........guest services was long wait especially the last day, then there was a charge of over 100 dollars on my card for something i didnt even do!!!!! no clue how that happened ,, we never lost our cards.......waste of 45 mins when i had an early flight that morning..........waiters in dining area were nice but werent as people friendly and talkative as im used was ok though......

room: room attendant cleaned our room twice a day which was great!! job well done....our room was nice as im used to interior but i decided oceanview and it was nice with more space, cant go back to interior anymore!!

i have to note this was the first cruise ive done where my brother noticed that there was no sports area like a basketball court, ping pong, rock climbing wall, etc.....what is that????

well thats about it................overall because of the people we met and the entertainment , we had a great trip but i will prob do royal carribean next cruise or try norwegian, I like multiple food options and excellent service....oh and the cruise director marcello was great too!!!

if you want late food, its only pizza and ice cream, go before the club lets out which is around 2:30-3. ...if not ur waiting forever get pizza.....
