Very disappointing ship - first impression as you boarded as werre taken to the pool deck that the ship was a giant playgournd for kids, with waterslides and  spray pools.  The 'adult ' pool was located in the back of the ship and became overcrowded with 10 people in it. 

The next 'surprise' was the cabin design, 'modern european' which meant the bathroom was in the bedroom or the bedroom in the bathroom.  Step from the shower into the doorway hall and forget to draw the 'privacy' curtain.  The sink was in the bedroom and if someone is using the sink the only way across the cabin is over the bed.


The other 'feature' is the gian casino located in the center of the midship acitivty area.  You could not walk from one end of the sip on the resteraunt decks without passing through one of the smokiest casino's outside of downtown vegas.


On the plus side, the speciality resteraunts were very good, whihc is a needed plus because the main dining rooms weren't.  The Cirque show was really good and worth the cost 


Overall, the experience wasn't terrible, just poor, and I can understand why the prices were great.


btw - I could go on with many other issues, but hopefully this will forewarn the next raveller.
