In spite of being on a new large ship this cruise was barely average at best. The ship was designed for maximum capacity which meant long lines, sold out shows, crowded buffet area and the pool deck being ridiculously full with no available chairs. The ship has nothing special except they stacked on more decks to hold more passengers.

There were only 3 stops in 7 days so that they could keep us on the ship longer to spend our "precious" with them instead of in the ports. They should schedule one more stop so that there are not 4 days at sea out of 7. The food was decent in the main buffet and really good in the specialty restaurants if you don't mind spending a lot extra. I won't sail on this one again.
