the ship was absolutely gorgeous, some of the food quality was a little weak we ate upstairs in the specialty restaurants 6 out of 8 nights cops steakhouse was only fair at best my appetizer the crab cake" I was shocked to find way too much filler i ordered the filet for my entree and I asked for it Pittsburgh medium the waiter served it to me completely rare evidently the chef didn't understand what Pittsburgh medium was. I wss surprised to find very little entertainment throughout the shipeven in the casino no music or a live band. I'm also a little bit of a coffee snob the regular coffee is supposedly Seattle's best it was not the coffee was unless you ordered a specialty coffee. these new super mega ships are literally gorgeous but bigger is not always better I'll take a pass next time
