Nice Itinerary and port stops

Service was fair at bars but poor when it came to waiter/waitress (especially pool side).

Guest services wait lines was terrible (2x over 24 min).

Food was good, but not great.

Entertainment was poor (sold out shows and charging for shows).

Very big ships = long lines.

Staff was friendly but seemed overwhelmed.

Management was very effective in hiding when needed.
