Review summary

This ship was updated, good design, very well done. Looked more like a resort. Drinks were pricey. I don't drink but to get drink package we both had to purchase a package. Same with soft drink package, which is sad to have to purchase a soft drink package at the price of a small glass of fountain soft drinks. The buffet was always full. The included dining was excellent. I would have been hard pressed to have spent money for meals considering the quality in the included dining.

They appeared to be quite enjoyable. We only used the pool, the hot tubs were usually full.

"Burn the Floor" was a high energy production. The "Million Dollar Quartet" was an excellent show, very well done.

No kids

Everyone we interacted with were friendly and couldn't do enough. Room steward "Moose" was excellent. Seldom saw him but everything was always fantastic!

Had nice breakfast then took our own bags at our leisure. Walked off 1/2 block walk to our truck. Quite easy.
