Review summary

The cruise was great. Our only complaints were no deck chairs because people saved them and were never sitting in them. The events in the atrium were hard to get seats for, but when you did it was always worth it. Too hard to get reservations for the comedy shows. Even though we enjoy the smaller ships, this was an overall great cruise.

Specialty restaurants were excellent. Buffet was very good, clean, and found ample seating. The main dining rooms were very good.

O'Sheehan's Bar and Grill

We did not care for this restaurant. We went in for lunch, the waiter only brought out half of our meals, and they brought the appetizers and main course at the same time. One of our party received his meal when the rest of us were almost done.
