Really great trip!

I didn't think the food was as good as the cruise I went on many years ago, but having choices was awesome, the staff was mostly attentive, appreciated the spa and relaxing especially in the hot saunas and steam rooms!  The shore excursions were excellent, had a few better guides than others but overall really good.  I don't like the 18-21% increase but realize that's what comes with it.  Enjoyed the activities, watching or participating, wish it was warmer for the pool activities but still tried it and was a blast!  ( I dont have pictures downloaded yet to send)  Thank you! Big Smile

Cabin / Stateroom The cabin was excellent- I do think I would have a balcony next time but it was very accommodating and well planned out, clean and recleaned well!
Really enjoyed my crew guy Curt- was very courteous and mentioned me by name, greeted me and asked about my day. He was fabulous. Thanky ou!

Decide what amenities, on board activities etc you will be at or attending the most and chose a cabin closer to that area. I chose the middle so it was nice to go either direction since it is a really large ship. The elevators are usually full and I used the stairs work off some of the great food
