I was mostly satisfied with the ship except for Anytime was far from that! Regardless when you came, it was a 20/30 minute wait or longer. And when one looked inside there were empty tables, but saved for those who made reservations. I thought that defeated the purpose of AnyTime dining. Food was OK throughout the ship, altho some of the items on the bread/pastry area were very dried out and obviously not fresh each day. Room was very adequate and well kept. Entertainment was so-so. too many comedians, not enough variety. Perhaps some revues based on the countries we were visiting would have been nice. Oh well, we had a good time anyway.

Ship Tip

If going to AnyTime dining, call first thing in a.m. to get a reservation. Otherwise it is a looonnnnng wait.
