Review Summary

Cigarette smell in ship. Beautiful water. Ports smoking restrictions were great! Plan on an hour wait for everything. Bring a watch. Disappointed compared to other ships. Minimum cost for taxi rides per person were $40 no negotiating below the price. Behind the scenes tour was extremely expensive for a ship attraction. Everything is $ on ship. 10 photos for only prints ($160). They had great laundry deals/price and folded very well. Buy a specialty dining pass package ahead of time. The steak and Italian was not worth the price.
