I recommended the ship if you come with LOTS of extra money. At the bars they add auto-tips to every drink but ask for more. You can eat for free at several restaurants where the food is below average or pay extra for decent at a specialty restauranst like Le Bistro (20$ per person extra) but charge you extra if you want something on the \"special\" side of the menu! Communication is really bad, eg: they ran a staff drill on the day passengers went on shore excursions..meaning, you couldn't get down elevators or stairs to disembark! Same thing happened on the day we left.
Getting food and a place to sit at the free restaurants was nightmarish.
