Sky High Bar and Grill

The bartenders were friendly. Since this was one of the smoking areas, I think the bar should have been open more.

The theater was nice. This was where we went for muster drill - very low key & not what I've been used to!

Spinnaker Lounge

The cabin was clean, plenty of hangers. It took 2 requests to separate the bed & remove from cabin the items in the refrigerator. There was only 1 night with a towel animal!
