The trip was outstanding! Andre an was a great bartender and server. The specialty restaurants were delicious. Easy on and off the ship. Can't wait to go back next year.

Good cruise. Okay ship. It is a huge ship with a lot of people and crew so there aren't really too many quiet spots. Make sure you like people! We recommend having a balcony to relax and enjoy the complimentary continental breakfast room service every morning. It is great!

GIVE GUESTS THE OPTION OF CHANGING THEIR FREE PACKAGE ONCE THEY'VE ARRIVED ON THE SHIP. (remove the 48 hour prior policy). This would be valuable to a first time cruiser, or helpful to those who cancel an excursion, for whatever reason while on board, or to someone, like me, who realized I'd prefer to have the drink package. The corporate offices in Florida, should be able to find a way to accommodate this adjustment. Work to find a solution, to allow for this to happen. As you know, at the end of the day, it comes down to customer service! Overall, it's a nice ship, and the staff worked hard to accommodate such a large crowd. I felt nickel & dimed to a significant extent. There is a mindset by many, that a cruise is an all-inclusive experience. The added costs add up, and breach the trust between passenger & cruise line. For this reason, I'll be looking towards smaller ships that offer more a better value as part of the package.

Horrible room location and Food ! When booking through WorldWide Travel (BJ'S) they never stated the room had a blocked room and was in front of a designated smoking area !!! What's the sense of paying al the extra $$ for a balcony when you couldn't even use it, because if you did you where constantly sitting in a wave of smoke. Also, there are some floating devices / Bumpers that are stored right in front of your room, so you couldn't sit in the chairs and see the water, total waste of the money.Angry

O'Sheen's Irish bar is the best place to go for an enjoyable sit down breakfast. It is also great for lunch, where you can even be served at the bar!

Deck 16 burgers are great. Deck 16 no wait for breakfast omelets. Large posters on wall are the kiosks and book your activities right away. Bring ear plugs. If you go to Taste for breakfast you get a decent order from a menu breakfast.
