Room Type: Oceanview

Depending on what you are looking for, this cruise had pros and cons. We had great rroms for the price. I have always enjoyed the small touches that weren't on this cruise. That said, the rooms were great and cleaned well (just no creatively folowed towels, etc.). The shows were pretty good and the ship facilities were good (loved the sauna and steam rooms with windows to the outside). The biggest negative was the food. Across the board, the food just did not compare in quality or variety to others (Royal & Princess). In summary, the ports and rooms were great, the facilities and the activities were okay, and the food and finer points were just okay. All that said, how bad could it be? It's a cruise for goodness sake.

Pros: Spacious Rooms, Diversity, Gambling for my 19 yr old, 15% native english speakers

Cons: Food, Food, Food...
