We thought the ship was great and well maintained.  The crew was working hard to please.  Was not happy with more "pay" items, especially the entertainment.  Booking for the entertainment was easy, but had to do it early to be sure you got a reservation.  If you didn't want to pay for the entertainment and had already seen the complimentary shows, there were a few nights where the only thing to do was attend the crew game shows.  We never had a disappointing meal while on the ship, it was all served with a smile and was excellent.  The one time I questioned how the dish was made (and I was right that it was missing an ingredient), I was offered another without hesitation.  I would have liked to see "adult" time specified for the rope course, zip line, mini-golf, ping pong, etc. as the children on board made available time to enjoy these activities very, very small -- especially on the "at sea" days where there was not much else to do. 


Although the elevators were many, they were very small and did not accommodate many people so there were long waits to catch an elevator that was not full.

Very nice. Especially liked the shower door instead of a curtain.

Ship Tip

Be prepared for waits since the passengers number 4,000+.
