Review summary

New ship no wow factor the entrance on to the ship is bland and uninviting. does not say welcome you are on vacation! All the other amenities are there and one can have a lot of fun. If watching a movie or having a smoke on 11 make sure that someone from you group lets wait staff know that you are there in order to get service. Some of the meals were not very good undercooked chicken and plastic in a soup. We had a great maître d, she had a great presence and worked hard. Our cabin was always ready. I almost felt he new when we left as some tomes I came back only after a few minutes and it was always cleaned.

To be fare, the room was awesome I loved the cove balcony! The rate is due to design, there is a work station above the room that starts work early. They DRAG what must be mettle racks across the floor! I had little sleep while aboard!
