Review summary

The newly renovated ship was beautiful.  Our balcony stateroom (1162) was delightful.  Staff was well trained and very helpful. The food in the two main dining rooms was very good and we didn't feel the need to use the special restaurants.  Drinks were expensive.  I would recommend taking advantage of one of the precuise drink packages.  We did two shore outings through RC and three through  The tours worked out somewhat better but that is probably due to the specific ones we signed up to go on.  Two of the pools that  we used were a bit small and uniformly deep (~6) but had convenient sidebars to hang on to.  Ship very clean.  We enjoyed a little bit of the entertainment (comedian, guitar music in centum).  There was a nice mixed of people on the ship. Children's activities looked good.
