This was my first cruise and I was pleasantly surprised it was much more enjoyable than originally anticipated. The "Freestyle Cruise" was a great option as we could eat whenever and wherever we wanted and do whatever, whenever. No schedule or specific times to have to be anywhere. The buffet was pretty standard and Palace restaurant was nice. Food quality was good, not outstanding, but definitely enjoyable. Plenty of selection. The theater shows - comedian, Broadway rundown, and staff Variety Show - were very entertaining and engaging for the audience. Very talented. The 2-for-1 drink specials each night made it a bit more affordable to be able to enjoy a few drinks before and after dinner. Late night activities were for the younger adult crowd, but we had fun. We had an inside stateroom which had enough room, but need an multi-plug, as there is only 1 plug in the entire room. The bathroom and shower were quite small, but we made do. Overall this was a great choice for my first cruise and I highly recommend this ship and staff.

Pros: Plenty of onboard activites for all ages; food and drink 'specials'; extremely friendly staff

Cons: there needed to be more staff available at the service desks
