When you first see this monster of a ship you are absolutely amazed. When you enter the ship it just keeps you amazed. There is a lot of decor throughout the ship but in all actually not too much to do. There are two swimming pools side by side for the younger people and another pool seperate for adults. Very new and quite convenient. The food on the ship is very good but you will find better on Celebrity. The excursions on the island were very good and getting off and on the ship was fairly easy. There are a lot of people on this ship but there is pleanty of room for everyone which was a bonus. The lay out of the ship was not exactly very flush. Sometimes you'd have to walk up two flights of stairs just to get to the back of the ship and then walk down the two flights of stairs you just walked up. It's very confusing and is exactly like the Voyager, which I went on a year ago. The service will obviously vary with who helps you. But our service was very adequate and helped my family out very much. The ship was very clean, but you would have to expect that form a ship not even a year old yet. The captain on the ship was actually one of the most boring captains I've met on all the ships I've been on. On other ships the captain will interact with the guests a lot but this one was quite a stiff. Royal Carribean puts on a great cruise but they highered the drinking age and the gambling age to 21 so if your under 21 your gonna be surprised and not gonna like it too much. You will obviously meet people on the ship and it is up to you how you handle that and have a good time. All in all, this ship and the voyage was quite excellent but it would have been better if it wasn't laid-out so weird and there was more to do. RCI is a good cruise line and I will travel it sometime again but I think the new Celebrity ships are looking very good.Chris from Virginia
