We had a very good time. It is relaxing not having to be on a schedule unless you wanted to be on one. The crew was accomodating. The Cruise Director was the hit of the whole cruise. He made sure everyone was laughing and having a great time.
Dining was a nice experience in the main dining rooms. The buffet was ok and good in a pinch.
Pool area was very nice. Overall - a positive experience.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Dining in the Crossings was a much better experience than in the Palace.
We felt more welcome and we were much more relaxed and were able to enjoy the food and our conversation.

The Cruise Director, Matt Baker, made the cruise. He was funny and very entertaining. The shows were good and there was something for everyone.
The shows were well planned and one followed the other.

Children's Programs

There was something for everyone and every age.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
The reception crew went out of their way to help with a smile on their face.
The crew in the Palace dining room was pleasant, but made us feel we were making them work. The crossings dining room was totally different. What a difference the staff made there.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The ship was decorated in a pleasant theme.
Very Clean and very organized.

Cabin / Stateroom

Good if you like to shop. We have been there so many times that we enjoy being on the ship more.

Very relaxing. Clean with plenty to do or not to do if you choose. Get you hair braided here, it is much cheaper. Please note that it hurts...
Don't Miss: Hair braiding.

Cons: Staff in Palace Dining rm not as nice as Crossings
