Beautiful ship however the size compromised the service and quality expect on this new ship. The 2 main pools were not sufficient for all the guest on the ship. The main dinning rooms food was not good and the service was worse. The ice bar and the cirque was extra. Lines were very long. I paid for a family balcony and got a queen size bed and couch made into a sofa bed and a pull down bunk blocking the view. Not to mention the bathroom that was enclosed by a opaque door litrally 4 inches from the head of the master bed.
