Our overall experience for this cruise was excellent. Cabin service was great, the shows on the cruise were great....especially the magic shows by Alexander Great and Wayne Hoffman's mind reading shows will be remembered by us all for long time. Some stage shows were excellent as well with dazzling backdrops etc. Cruise director Susan was awesome in many ways. Atrium events were very good too.

My only pet peeves were...great variety of food at buffet but with mediocre quality (tastewise), paying for basic thing like water (which you need for dehydration), very cramped shower stall in the cabin and not enough cold water for shower (which was my main requirement). Another big disappointment was Alfredo's pizzeria in formal Sabatini's restaurant. The pizza cook miserably missed the mark and served absolutely horrible tasting pizzas....this is after getting used to New York and Chicago famous pizzas. Rest is fine.Yummy

Cabin / Stateroom
Overall quite good. Shower was too small. Shower water temperature could not be controlled properly.
The bedding was good and housekeeping did great job of making beds constantly. Only wished they had provided regular cushions as well. The cabin staff was courteous and helpful.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Very well handled and managed.

Food and Dining See my detailed review above.


The pizzeria on the 14th deck should have a little more variety in pizzas. The hamburgers were very good.
