BEGINNING - Getting on the ship was really easy. You just walked up to the desk, presented your information, and they presented you with your SuperCharge card (mentioned below) for the ship. Boarding was simple. There wasn't anyone to show you where you cabin was when you got on, so you basically had to find it on your own. SHIP - The ship was so large it took the next day at sea to explore it. In the middle there was a huge opening 7 stories high, with 2 glass elevators overlooking it. At night they'd have a singer at the bottom level. Everything was strategically placed for easy arrival on the ship. It featured an elegant, 2 story theater where bingo and the main shows were held. There was a grand casino and other different rooms. FOOD - The Great Gatsby, the main dining room, was elegant. I found the lighting a little too dim, which others think is romantic. We were on the bottom level and had superb waiters. The food, in my opinion, was great. If you don't want all the fancy meals, you can always order a cheeseburger. The casual dining room, the Windjammer Cafe where the breakfast and lunch was held, was a very nice place to sit. Breakfast wasn't too good. In the solarium, a glass enclosed pool area, was a 24 hour cafe with pizza, cheeseburgers, hotdogs, and fries. ENTERTAINMENT - The entertainment was ok. The cruise director was very funny and the comedy was great. Some of the shows weren't the best. They had a lot of oldies song shows there.
