Review summary

Ship was fine. Crew was fine. Only complaint really was that the ship felt quite crowded. The ship was sold out, but also felt that the rooms had 3 or 4 people in many of them. We didn't use the pools, casino, or participate in any of the shows. Food was decent, staff was nice. I continue to feel that the alcohol costs are higher than they should be. Child care service was really good for the twos.
