I personally am not fond of huge ships, but considering its size and the number of people, lines, etc., were not too bad.  Going from one place to another a chore.  Crew, especially maitre d's in third and fifth floor restaurants, extremely attentive.  The orange juice served in the restaurant is orange water.  There's a charge for the real thing, or pineapple juice.  The cabin steward was fine but did not check the shampoo container before we boarded.  There I am soaking wet in the shower and NO SHAMPOO.  All requests were otherwise promptly met.  Amazingly, we always found chairs by the adult pool in a shady spot.  Plenty of towels but pools too crowded--god just for soaking.

Food and Dining
not outstanding but OK and individual allergies and requests were promptly met.
Service and Staff
Dennis, deck 5 restaurant. Rodrigo Deck 3 restaurant--excellent, attentive, remembered special requests.
Ship Quality
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Cabin / Stateroom
Handicapped acessible cabin so more room than most.


Charges for capuccino and pineapple in restaurants. Substitutions, special orders accommodated promptly.
