Good but not as good as our Celebrity Cruise

Sail Date: November 22, 2015

Reviewed: 10 months ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

Pros-The Getaway ship had some neat attractions such as the water slides and ropes course which we enjoyed. Our child (boy age 8) liked the children's childcare "splash academy" more than other cruise to date. I was impressed how they did a lot of gym mats down and they were able to get out that wild kid physical energy and play gaga ball and other fun games. The staff here was wonderful!!! They decorated daily for different themes and made if really fun! Our cabin bathroom and shower felt larger than most.

Cons- We didn't like the hassle of standing in line for dinner reservations, show reservations, we prefer to either show up or have a set time and wait staff. We never ordered room service because of the up charge. All past cruises this was included. Food was quite good - great in fact however the portions were massive consistently. Example if you order bacon with breakfast they will put 8-10 slices on your plate. We felt food was wasted. Excessively large portions should be curbed. Our balcony was the most petite we have ever had. It was uncomfortable as was the stiff chairs on balcony. Our lights/tv would work unless you had the key card in wall socket. That was annoying. Public restrooms not as clean as Celebrity. Some trash blowing around on upper decks on day at sea golf area. Felt this ship so large they lacked some cleaning crews in certain areas. Felt a bit bored with lack of activities for families or adults on days at sea.  The Italian upgrade restaurant (the only 1 we went to was nothing special)

Our cruise travel agent did a wonderful job assisting in planning and was very helpful answering questions and providing tips.
