The ship overall is very nice. The rooms are nicer and more updated than the Royal Carribian. We loved the freestyle crusing and the sit down restraunts had delicious food. The buffet was okay with not a lot of variaty...its nothing fancy. The best part about the ship was the cheap drinks. You have to pay for bottled water, soda, and liqore but they are much cheaper than Royal Carribian. Unlimited soda for a day is around $6.45 and they have 2 for 1 mojitos and margaritas all day long....around $7.50 for two drinks. There are lots of activites on the ship, unless there is bad weather , you won't have a boring moment. If there is bad weather a lot of the activites get canceled. We went Jan. 8th weekend and could not go to Great Sturrip Cay because of 8 foot waves. The weather was also very cold also. We almost missed the ship becasue we got stuck at the Atlanta airport with ice on the wings. The best advice I can give is arrive the day before if you are flying.

Pros: The cheap drinks.

Cons: The buffet is just okay. Some of the public bathrooms were not kept clean.

Ship Quality
The size of the ship was great but the layout was very confussing. One of the resturants is located on the 6th floor but you have to get to it from the 5th floor. The layout is not intuitive but you get use to it by the third day. The decor is very nice but the cleanliness of public bathrooms need to be worked on. My husband and I went to several public bathrooms on the ship and found them to be a mess.
