We really had a good time, shows GREAT, food good, service outstanding in all areas, we just don't care for the free style eating; we like having the same waiter and assistant every night for our dining room.  but other than that it was really a good cruise.  We booked a mini suite and "thought" it would be a little plush but it was more a regular balcony, very nice but not what we thought.

We did think they lacked a little in this area, sea days and port days.

Didn't enjoy as much as other cruises but still a REAL GOOD one.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The room was very nice but thought it would be a little more plush than just a regular cabin.

Ship Tip

Not enough tables in the Buffet area. And then when you did find a table you had to walk a "long" way to get any more food.

5 out of 5
Very small BUT the fastest we have ever gotten on or off a ship!

It was okay. We enjoyed the chocolate factory and the tour there.

Last time we were there we didn't have to tender in. We didn't even get off this time.
