Quick check in. Buffet was ready and plentiful. Room was clean, and beds were put together to our satisfaction. Even though we travel as Mr & Mrs, we had to request the beds be put together. First cruise ship to have sliding shower doors. Best entertainment of any recent cruise. And that was every night. Beautiful dining room ( Venetian), but the Auqua is smaller. Anytime dining worked for us. We are early eaters, and we were seated promptly each night. We missed the camaraderie which comes with assigned seating, and felt that not so much attention was given when the tip is prepaid. Not to suggest that anyone was rude, but only about half the staff gave the extra effort. Lawson in particular in the Venetian.was fantastic. However, the departure was a big disappointment. We selected the walk off option, and we had to circle much of the ship only to find ourselves in competition for a spot on the gangway. This was made worse by a 1 hour wait at breakfast for biscuit and gravy with scrambled eggs. Our waiter was pleasant and apologetic, but it still took an hour.
Now for the question. " would we go with them again?" , The answer is yes. In fact, we booked our next cruise on board for 2016.
The bed issue and the lack of cameraderie were minor items. The overall cruise was excellent . Thanks for asking.

Very pretty ship, well maintained. Nothing to complain about.
