Service great but there was a slight language barrier for non typical situations. My wife is gluten free and they would give us a menu of the next days meals and she would select so they would cook anything gluten free for her. Food was very good and had no problem with anytime dining. Specialty Pinnacle restaurant was exceptional.
Room was balcony on upper promenade. Very large with balcony @ 25% larger than normal. Bath also had a tub which was great compared to the usual transporter style shower.
Would have given 5 stars but entertainment was really lacking across the board.
Passengers were not older as we expected but ran the entire age spectrum and the ship was still rocking at midnight. We love to dance and were able to all nights except formal night when only had 1 hour of dancing entertainment. BB King Blues band was great and played 5 nights in their own theatre with dancing.
