Review summary

We had a wonderful time. We loved the pre-recorded ballroom dance music. We enjoyed the zumba and fun fitness classes, as well as the ballroom and line dance classes. We really enjoyed the ice skating shows as well. The food and service were very good. We suggest discontinuing the piped in music in the Windjammer. It is often loud and the selection of songs does not make for a pleasant eating experience. The accoustics in the theatre can be very loud, especially when the singers in the shows are performing. We had to leave the theatre on one occasion because the amplification of their voices was ear-piercing. We really enjoyed eating at the buffet in the Saphire Lounge. Thank you for a wonderful cruise - we will be back!
