Excellent itinerary with fantastic ports. Embarkation and disembarkation process extremely efficient. Ship a bit older but well maintained and clean. Crew looks happy working there and greets you with a happy smile. Food overall is a notch below that of Princess and Celebrity but main dining is quite good. We would have gone to a specialty restaurant if we did not find anything we liked in the main dining. But we did find something every night and we are glad that we stayed with the main dining. Breakfast is exactly the same everyday and it wasn't that great. Lunch buffet was so so, nothing to be excited about. We travel with a three year old and we love the freestyle. Some ports can be visited on your own. But the shore excursions we joined were quite worthwhile. Entertainment was exceptional. Magic and aerial shows were great. The Elements show was exceptional. 

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Breakfast can use some variety over 7 days and both the breakfast and lunch huffet can use some improvement in flavour and taste. Main dining for dinner is actually quite good.

Service and Staff

Freestyle dining service is not the same as traditional dining so don't expect the same. If you don't want to line up for the Pacific dining room then head for dinner early by 6.

Ship Quality

Ship a bit old but well maintained and clean. Water slide a big hit with my three year old son.
