We traveled over Christmas and the crew was friendly as usual.  We were surprised at the lack of decorations for Christmas, just a few trees and some garland.  Some of the garland was paper and paper Santa Clauses were hung in some dining areas.....frankly we expected it to be more decorated and Christmasy.  Christmas day brought egg nog and some Christmas carols. Dinner was amazing with Turkey and Beef Wellington.

The desserts were really bad through out the trip with the upside of no weight gain on the trip.  

Not loving cruising the way I have in the past, very expensive and just didn't feel like a great value.

Beautiful ship and friendly crew, a few instances when we felt we had really good service.
