We sailed on this ship Aug 6-15 2009.
The ship is everything that is shown - plus some.
We liked the fact that there was an adult pool, but felt that there should be some music piped in there since the live music from the other pools couldnt be heard.
I felt ( and heard manyothers say the same thing) that the food in the windjammer was the same thing every day. 9 days is a long time and they should change it up a little. We found that the sushi at dinner time was not really sushi...lol. One roll had ham and eggs in it!
They have done away with the Midnight buffet as well as the Chocolate buffet. That was a bit disappointing. However, there was Caribbean night where they had a bufet on the top deck at 11:30 as well as a lunch BBQ at the pool when we left San Juan. this was fabulous
Johnny Rockets was TERRIBLE
Comparing the food to a RC cruise 5 years ago - I did feel that the quality and selection has gone down. Im NOT saying it was terrible, it was still very good - but not what it was 5 years ago. I'm sure that this has to do with economic times. Eat lunch in the dining room when you can - the salad Bar is INCREDIBLE. We also loved the deli that was open 24 hrs a day.
the ice show was spectacular
