Enjoyed all the ports of call. Did shore excursions in every port.  


Tried the ji ji restaurant had an exceptional meal there. Way too large of portions for the average person.  


Dining room meals were okay.  You never went hungry but was not fantastic


New ship was not fully booked so never had to wait for things.  However I think it could be an issue when the boat is sold out

Cabin / Stateroom
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Docked at a different terminal than planned so as a result missed the shore excursion that was booked privately. Think that could have been a problem with many people judging by the number of people I overheard saying they were wondering where their ride was
Ship Quality
