Review summary

The food was great, better than used to be. The service was impeccable from room to dining. Overall, the ship was well maintained.

The downsides are the gym and the entertainment. The spin bicycles are locked up because you need to pay $11 to use them, so are other group exercise classes that you need to pay to attend. It seems like what you pay for the cruise is not enough. Entertainment not like used to be.
