Ship was clean. Staff was friendly, helpful, and upbeat. We have been on Disney 3 times and RC Allure and Oasis. So, we are spoiled with the nicest ships on the sea. Beds were not comfortable, limited activities, lots of geriatric people, not many included food choices, sodas not included, extra money for kids club lunch and dinner. Extra charge for fine dining was NOT worth the money. It was average. Disney, Allure and Oasis blows this ship away.
