great escape/nice ship

Wonderful experience overall; beautiful ship with lots of activities as well as private niches to get away from all the activities. The Adults only Spice H20 bar is a nice area to relax without getting splashed by little kids, and the water slides are great for spending time with kids. Really enjoyed the specialty dining restaurants and overall itinerary.  Library is rather poorly stocked (and poorly planned with a shared wall with the atrium's live music and noisy activities?)--so not much of a "library" atmosphere.  The only real problem we had was with the internet connection service; we purchased--and used-- 250 minutes online as part of our package, but were only able to access the internet for a total of 37 minutes during the cruise due to slow connections /not enough band width (I ended up having to do my essential work at 4 in the morning in order to be able to send emails in less than 30 minutes).  Overall, highly recommended!

Cabin / Stateroom
Very spacious with lots of room for storage. Great forward location close to restaurants and stairs, but still quiet/restful. Lots of room for storage in the cabin. Bed was very comfortable!

Taste and Savor were very nice dining venues. Tropicana room was really entertaining with live entertainment as we dined. Tried Cagneys, Ocean Blue, Moderno, and Le Bistro; all of them were excellent. For Adults, find and spend time in Spice H2o lounge--much better than the main deck pool!
