Freestyle dining means there are three complementry dining rooms, all with the same limited menu.  Food was average compared to other cruises we have been on.  To enjoy a wider menu you have to pay $15 to $30 extra per person and make a reservation.  The shows were good but there were only two free shows that we were aware of. The rest of the shows were all extra.  


The ship was fun with 5-6 waterslides, a climbing wall.  Also there is a rope walking experience which has you in a harness 20 ft above deck, walking in ropes, riding a zip line, and walking the plank. Entirely safe but quite an experience.


The crew was very friendly, helpful and accomodating. There was dancing every night on the upper rear deck, and interactive entertainment in the atrium which was a lot of fun.

Ship Tip

The large free dining room with the dance floor (Flamingo?) is noisy. The Savor and Taste dining rooms have the same menu but are quieter.
