The food was good we liked the smaller main dining rooms found the service better and food served hotter. I was very disappointed in how many extras they charge you for such as the better shows and better dining I feel those should be included in your cruise price.  No really special dishes desert served (always had lobster somewhere on other cruises, none on this trip). Attended many on ship activities and most were very disorganized, something I have not found on other lines.  The ship was very new and very clean no signs of age on this ship which was a plus.  Our previous cruise was on Royal Freedom of the Seas I did prefer the professionalism and food much better on that line. We loved freestyle dining.

You had to pay for better entertainment, all entertainment should be included in your cruise price.

Ship Tip

Try the smaller (Taste and Savor) main dining rooms for meals much more intimate and at no charge.

Everyone seems to be trying to sell you something everywhere you go, gets old.
