Fantastic journey- lifetime experience. 16 days on board did not seem long-
Enjoyed 2 days at sea time
Didn’t like when ports were day after day after day.
Didn’t like short days in port- don’t understand that!
Good ship, great crew, coast to coast with passage was GREAT- experience.
Absolutely wonderful journey.

Food and Dining
5 out of 5
Manhattan room great, really liked walk up and get pick of great table. Service good, food good, selection good, tried very hard to please and fill extra requests, nice semi formal large dining experience.
Taste-Savor- same as Manhattan except more cozy- good-
American diner good food, familiar selections, good prices if a-La-cart.
Q was great- great taste- large servings- good service- went 30 minutes before showtime made it dinner and show-great. Cagney- great- had to go back a second time to be sure it was as good as first-lol.
Tappanyiki- as good as your table guests and draw of server-entertainer. Meat better than expected-shrimp-sides good-Fun.
Italian- not above average-could have passed.
The Local- a favorite to be entertained while we grabbed a bite- solid good offerings- good service, nice. Haven-ok limited selection never changes- too quiet-lol-. Buffet- solid good food, good selection, some change, some stay same. Have seen more and better bread selections, more desserts, more meats on RC. No pies?- hated having to beg for cookies locked away hidden behind counter- no sense in that! Ice cream always available was a treat though.
Bars were quick and never got a light pour. Nice specialty drinks and selection. Bartenders friendly and knowledgeable.

Race cars were so so. Floored all the way around the track, no let up needed for corners, not enough room to pass pokeys- not challenging. Casino broken up- nice to be able to stay away from smokers even though they had some machines we wanted to play but wouldn’t—not loose- lol.
water slides managed poorly, only serviced 1/2 what they could have.

Mediocre at best, college level productions, they did try hard. Comedians, magic, others- C- couple complete duds. No show or entertainer was worth a second chance except Arvin the entertainer. He was top notch and we planned for every event he appeared.
No kids- didn’t want to see any lol
Service and Staff
5 out of 5
All service and staff were First rate and never had a grump or frown.
Some went way way over, out of their way to make the experience super special and memorable.
Stay away from medical if possible- EXPENSIVe
Room steward, excellent, personable and made it fun. Butler served and placed on linens- breakfast and dinner whenever we wanted and at Exact time We ordered. Everything asked for was delivered, hot, fresh, great, and with a smile.
4 out of 5
Wi-fi not up to par-couldn’t even backup my iPhone pictures to the cloud-Expensive-
Clean ship, large, roomy, just not laid out for Americans-lol
Not enough elevators- lot of splitting of areas.
Front viewing excellent- made for canal passage-lol
All kept tidy, fresh, didn’t feel too crowded anywhere except pool deck on warm sea day -duh
Seemed roomy walking around for the most part. Can’t imagine who would put the center of entertainment in the middle of customer service area(excursion desk, internet, help desk , next, etc.)How are you supposed to converse?
Well maintained, cleaned, serviced, well lit, comfortable environmentally ship.
Cabin / Stateroom
5 out of 5
Yes, yes, yes- king bed, full tub with shower, double sinks . 2 chairs and dining table, couch, large patio with table and soft chairs- could only get temperature down to 69* but slept under sheet and asked for light blanket. Bedding so so good. Pillow top- feather comforter, all varieties of pillows, blankets.
Good storage, amenities. Great room- great location. Cleaned and tidied every time we left room and once even while we were there when we asked. Nite time turn down- different snacks every evening was over the top. Extra pillows, towels, different blankets- anything asked was provided immediately.
Relax- enjoy- ask and you shall receive-lol Time in port can be tooooo short
Not enough time there
Beautiful- intriguing- do a private tour- rented Taxi that spoke good English, $20/hr- took us all around, stopped for photos whenever we wanted, gave us good local info, cheap RX, cheap drinks and good food, covered more miles than ever thought possible. He was very cognizant of time and made sure we were going in right direction to be on ship on time!
