The food was great in all food areas. Was a bit dissapointed that they took the eggs benedict station away. That was always nice to look forward to in the mornings for breakfast in the buffet area.

Would like to have steele drums on the pool deck on sea days like they used to have. Would also like to see more game shows like the old new newlywed game. That was always alot of fun.
