This is a beautiful ship. We loved the solarium with heated pool for adults only. It was quiet and you could usually get a nice lounge chair. The workout facility was spacious and had plenty of machines so you didn't have to wait. The Windjammer was a great place to eat breakfast. There were no long lines and food was on islands categorized by type of food. It didn't seem like a cafeteria. The staff was outstanding - very friendly and upbeat. Made you feel like they really appreciated your business. Dining room service and food were excellent. We had a balcony cabin and it was small but there was ample room to store everything we had in four large suitcases. When emptied, we stored the suitcases under the bed. Cabin was serviced several times a day with fresh towels if needed. The shows were excellent. We had the late seating for dinner (8:30 pm) which was much too late for us but the show time was at 7 pm so it worked well with the dinner schedule. There should be more "my time" dining. We were scheduled for early seating (6:00 pm) but when we checked in, we were given the 8:30 pm seating. We asked to be switched and they did their best to accomodate us and offered my time after a couple of days.
