Review summary

The food and staff were wonderful. The port was beautiful. Wasn't happy with this ship. People pre-booked shows but didn't attend. They just wanted to cover themselves in case they wanted to go. There was a very small dance floor by the pool. Saw a raunchy game in the Atrium where they allowed kids. We had to sit on the floor on the atrium (we're in our 50's) while kids sat in chairs, and no one asked the kids to move for us. They have a LOT of rooms so there should be more room by the pool and in the common areas, like the atrium and theater. I prefer the smaller ships.

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
Always clean. Design left a lot to be desired. It's built to house people but not to entertain them. There wasn't enough room for dancing by the pool, we had to sit on the floor for games in the Atrium because there weren't enough seats (even after they brought folding chairs), and 2 banks of elevators aren't enough for such a large ship.

Cabin / Stateroom
