Review summary

Beautiful ship. Largest in the world by the way. Very clean. Staff friendly and helpful. Plenty of things to do on board. The shows were all entertaining and very well done. Food was very good and the specialty dining experiences were wonderful. With 1,000s on board you would think long lines everywhere but, this was not the case. Easy on and off the ship at ports of call too. A few things were disappointing. Some passengers brought their own music devices on board so if you went to a hot tub or other public area you may be forced to listen to their music. RC needs to address this issue. Also, no pool in the adult area Solarium; just a stand-up sprinkler/mister area. Lastly, if you go to the spa for a treatment, be prepared for automatic 18% gratuity added to the bill and a sales pitch at the end to purchase their products. We cruise every year or sometimes every two years so with that said we would recommend sailing on the largest cruise ship in the world if you can.

Very nice cabin. Room attendant was exceptional. A little small especially the standing area in the bathroom but overall a nice cabin.

Ship tip

Book all shows and excursions ahead of time. Booking shows allows you to enter a show 1/2 hour before and choose your seats. 15 minutes before the show non-reservation passengers waiting to see the show are then let in. Drink package highly recommended considering the cost if not purchased.

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
