Beautiful ship. Well maintained.  There is  always  someone  cleaning and  vacuuming. The state rooms  are nicely decorated and our  steward kept our room immaculate. He was  always  very friendly and never imposed. The ship is large and all the  stair cases to do not  go to all the floors  so pay attention when taking the  stairs.  There  are  lots of  signs to follow.  There  are  lots of activities  but  mostly for adults or very small children. I did not notice activities for  pre school to pre teen ages. They mostly  hung out at the  Aqua Park which made it very crowded. There is an infinity pool at the back of the ship that tends to not be as crowded. Its also good for non swimmers because it is only 4 feet deep. The other pools  are 6 feet. Lots of activities and lounges to hear live music. I was disappointed that kids were allowed in th Galaxy club even though  they  had their  own teen night  club. I saw  many kids there until 2 am. What can I say about the food? It  wasn't terrible  or uneatable just not tasty. It was the same thing for breakfast everyday. The fruits were not fresh and the trays  were always empty and we always had to wait. The Black Crab restaurant was pretty but once again I was not  wowed by the food or its presentation. Dont expect to get anything to eat at the  buffet after 10pm. There  was  pizza  that was  pretty tasty but  you can only eat  pizza  so many days in a row. There was  some food that was  brought out about  11:30pm but nothing interesting. That was the most disappointing part of the cruise. Overall the cruise was good  and I would go back again if the price is  right.  The ports of call were also pretty good as well.

for an interior room it was still pretty roomy. The steward kept it very clean.

Ship Tip

There are two hot tubs on deck 16 towardsthe back of this ship that are never crowded. A fun place to hang out with a group of friends

Great if you plan on buying lots of jewelry. The shop owners can be a bit pushy and follow you as you shop. This can be very annoying
