Great experience again. Liked the new ship. Skyride, Rope Obstacles and Beer Brewery tour a must. Love the funnels in the atrium that constantly changed. We were disappointed.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Lot's of selections to choose from both on the free side and for a small fee. Pigs and Anchor by Guy was very good as was Guy's Burgers - as always. Overall was good but still find desserts lacking in choice in main dining room.

We did Your Time Dining. We were fortunate to meet an OUTSTANDING team the first night we dined there. Anok and Sidon - HIT IT OUT TO THE PARK. Awesome. Cruise Director was very good.

Cabin / Stateroom

Standard type cabinet but found on this new ship even less space to put closes away. Steward was good.
