 We loved this cruise. Read a lot of complaints about the rooms. It's for Hobbits! OK for us - felt like our old RV camper. But if you are over 5'10" and weigh over 200 lbs, you might have a hard time. They also say its good for 3 people. Don't believe it. Two people max.

They really push the alcohol so that could be a problem with AA folks. The shows were all terrific - save for the Supreme Dream Girls which had a cheesy karaoke back track.

Forget the tours. The prices are outrageous. In Rome, we took the train to the Colosseum for $12 instead of their $125 bus ride. Read other comments for more advice.

We're not foodies, so had no reason to pay for the specialty resturants. The Garden Buffet served most of our bneeds and all the food was very tasty. Ate at the free Shanghai Chinese restaurant 3 times which was excellent.

Loved the water slide - and I'm 70 !

The main CON: They kept the ship really cold in the hallways and at the shows.
