This was my second cruise, the first having happened in 2009. Since then, the quality of the food has gone down; however, it was good (just not amazing). The service in the dining room was amazing, though!

Cabin / Stateroom

Our room was way too cold for the first two days. The staff was very responsive and eventually sent someone in to fix a stuck switch--after that it was just too cold, like the rest of that section of the ship. They really crank the A/C!

Ship Tip

Be prepared to be constantly bombarded by "offers" to spend money--on internet, excursions, bottled water, dinners at Chops, extra charges on the menu, etc, etc, etc. If you give in, the cruise won't be as economical as it appears.
