Overall this cruise was very good. Last year I was on the Breakaway. Differences are noticeable.

Although these shows were good, last time they were excellent & there were more choices. Food this time was very good, especially with the excellent wait service we had, namely Russell & Sahil. However, LaCucina was nothing but a disappointment this time & the price went up from last year which wasn't worth it at all. That won't happen again.

The crew were mostly very pleasant with a few exceptions. The restrooms weren't as clean as last year, by far.

The cruise director was good but abit more daily entertainment would've been nice since we did have several days at sea.

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin was fine. Steward was excellent except the last day when he was somewhat annoyed we hadn't left the cabin about 7 a.m. when we had until 8:30 a.m. When we did leave at that time, we then sat or rather stood around for over an hour with crowds.
