Very pretty and very big ship.  Staff were always super.  Dinner was nice, but buffet was better.  Ice show was super. Main shows were good, but were lacking.   Need more Comedy shows.   Gym was very nice.  Kids (18, 14, & 10) like other cruise better.   Basketball, FlowRider, Rock Wall were always too crowded.   Getting on the ship was bad and getting off was a nightmare.   Casino staff was very helpful in teaching us the games.
