Overall\, the ship was impressive. Upon entering through the centrum\, you feel as if you are in a five-star hotel. You are greeted by friendly staff. However\, I was not given directions to any of the amenities on the ship or to where my room was located. After locating our room\, we were slightly dissapointed at the size of the room itself and the bathroom. Our room attendant immediately found us and introduced himself. He was excellent. There are many bars/lounges to stop for a drink or to just relax and enjoy some entertainment. The Viking Crown lounge provided a great view of the ship and of the ocean. Dinner each night was excellent and was provided with excellent service. The ship is being retired in April\, so if you are looking for an affordable Royal Caribbean cruise\, this is it.
Pros: Service and food
Cons: Room size
