Great as long as not events were on. Few wait staff in the seating areas

Oceanview Cafe and Bar

Enjoyed most foods but in one case they failed to light the sterno can and the gravy for biscuits and gravy was stone cold. Enjoyed the late breakfast hours

Opus (Main) Dining Room

5 out of 5

Food was excellent and the wait staff goes above and beyond in their attention to the diner's needs. Stanley, Odis and Dadan took real good care of us.

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
Only two elevator locations which caused excessive walking. Not good for elderly or infirmed

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
TOO LITTLE SPACE FOR THE CRUISER TO PLACE CLOTHING, WOMEN TO PUT ON MAKEUP, TOO CRAMPED FOR RELAXATION. WORSE DESIGN OF A CABIN SINCE WE HAVE BEEN CRUISING FOR OVER 30 YEARS. WILL NEVER CRUISE ON A SOLSTICE CLASS SHIP AGAIN.
