Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Muster station assigned but no lifeboat number - not safe.

One land tour had a DANGEROUS busdriver - reported it to shore excursions who told me that it wasn't their responsibility - NOT safe - UGH!

Ports and Perks were good.

Happy staff - very personable.

Interrior room was VERY tiny - Balcony was much better.

Buffet layout was the best we've experienced on ANY ship, ANY line.

I HATE Freestyle - Freestyle = Stand in line and wait for a table (different every night) with a Wait Staff that is different every night and doesn't know your likes and dislikes.  If a person wants "free style" they can always go to the Buffet and have whatever they want, whenever they want it.  The introduction of Freestyle was the death of the fine shipboard dining experience.
