Review summary

ship was very nice, big. lots of dining options. room actually had lots of storage space and didn't feel closed in. didn't like that the children's center was closed periodically throughout the day. 4 water slides were nice, ropes course was very good. i was expecting better broadway type evening entertainment in the main theater. they also had good comedic and magic entertainment though.

Garden Cafe

its as good as a buffet can get. food not the best tasting but again you can expect more from a buffet. lots of space and multiple stations so no long lines. wait staff on their game.

Savor Restaurant

The Manhattan Room
