RCI offered smooth sailing and excellent organization as usual. Exception was getting a time and table for three stateroom reservations for anytime dining option; this did not go as smoothly. Ship very well run but could use sprucing up in its upcoming dry dock period. Stateroom service superb\, dining room service excellent. Good food overall with plenty of variety. Wonderful local guides were provided for shore excursions I took; great experiences here.

Room showed some wear but as stated before\, steward provided first rate service and attended to special needs.
