This is a great ship. Easy to navigate\, plenty of room and you do not feel crowded since there are so many seating areas. Everything was great. The crew were very polite and worked well with guests. Food was wonderful. Great selection in the main dining room as well as Oceanview cafe. Room service was great too. We did not see the need for special dining choices. We did a back to back cruise so it was extra nice. The only problem was in disembarkation and change around on the first trip. It seems that Customs officers are at a premium now and that made a royal mess out of everything. Passengers were backed up for hours. This is not a cruise line issue however some passengers did not understand that. We lived through it.

Food and Dining

Great choices\, nice atmosphere and more than friendly service. The matre d\, Joseph was an excellent communicator and problems with seating and passengers wishes were quickly and respectfully dealt with. The cafe had great choices also.
