Went on a cruise right before Xmas. The stateroom was very nice, the ports were nice. But we didn't like the service. The Anytime Dining is for the birds. We could never get the time we wanted and the service seemed definitely worse that what we had previously experience on Princess. They seem to want to charge extra for everything. For example, on previous cruises we could get a cappacino after dinner at no charge. In fact, the waiters were so good they started bringing these to us without our asking after a few days. On this cruise we had a different waiter every night and the only drinks they do not charge for were Ice Tea, Water, Hot Tea and Coffee.

We really liked the horseback riding on a beach on the Pacific Ocean.
