I would recommend this cruise. Good value for the money. Also if you were never in Bermuda. The ship does show a fair amount of deferred maintenance.
They have major events in the Centrum, which just is NOT big enough to
hold all the people, while the Crown Lounge that is much larger is nearly always
virtually empty. The most popular event as usual is the 50's and 60's party. They did have that in the South Pacific lounge, but it only lasted 45 minutes. They don't seem to understand who their demographic is and give the guests what they want.
The outside pool has enough chairs even on sea days. But we hung out in the adults only Solarium. The ship is easy to navigate and is user friendly. I asked the cashier in the casino to turn the music DOWN in the speaker over the blackjack tournament table so I could hear the instructions and concentrate on my game and to my surprise, SHE DID! I came in 3rd in the tournament and won a reasonable cash prize.

The top tier event for those who are Platinum members and above, (Captains Reception) was disappointing. No music, only lasted 45 minutes and only 1 drink. Whole thing was poorly executed. The Music was too loud almost everywhere. Bingo games were poorly conducted.
