Bayou was the best production show we've ever seen on a cruise ship, and the performers, musicians, lighting, sound, and special effects were superb.

Bummer... the promenade did not circumvent the ship. Old signage has not been removed since horrible Princess remodel to install more staterooms in the area of the former promenade. Lots of unused area in remodeled decks 14 and 15. Otherwise, the ship is in good shape.
