Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We have cruised a number of times. The service and food excellent. Shows and
entertainment good. There may have been a problem with passengers that just
came in because we had longer lines and waiting than anytime in past. Our return
getting off ship smooth and much faster. Tours seemed good - did not take any
since we had been there before, except for longer and more strenuous, but rave
reviews to us on ones that were younger.
Did notice some budget cuts, like free lotion, shampoo,etc. Ice not given unless
requested, but daily after.
