All the crew are wonderful and the restaurants have five star meals. Especially loved the shows each night - very entertaining, loads of talent. Tiny complaint: Every bar should have a $10 coffee pot so that the very common request for a simple Irish Coffee can be met. There was only ONE bar that had coffee and that machine was broke. The bartender actually told us we could trek over to the cafeteria and bring a cup of coffee to her and she would make us one. C'mon!

Also the two small pools and 4 small hot tubs were overrun with kids and teens. I was also surprised there was not an age limit for the hot tubs. We finally tried to use one after breakfast and it was freezing cold. :(

Ship Tip

Looking for quiet with great views - try the Spinaker lounge. It sometimes had activities but was often deserted.
Also, watch out for the Casino - they ripped hubby off making mistake on roulette admitted mistake but would not pay him his full bet. Would not let him see tape. Unregulated be careful
