Overall, a pleasure to cruise on this virtually brand new ship. Non-smoking policy is a great improvement over our cruise last year - smoking only allowed in casino, which was very smoky, and a few places on deck. For the first time, we were able to visit all of the bars. The whiskey/beer bar was very comfortable and the entertainment was terrific. The two main dining rooms were very well appointed and comfortable. Staff and food were great, as usual. Tendering still needs to be better coordinated and it would help if there was someone manning the excursion desk in the morning of the excursions for last minute questions.
