We are first time cruisers so we do not have anything to compare this experience to. On arrival to the ship, we were greeted immediately but the amount of information on where to go etc. was minimal, leaving us sort of wandering. Our stateroom was wonderful and I highly recomend the aft balcony. The food served at the buffets was mediocre at best. The specialty resturants were much better with LeBistro being wonderful. Cagney's was ok, the filet was outstanding, the New York strip was terrible, much like what you would get at a Western Sizzler. On the last night, they cleaned the Great Outdoor Cafe, which was directly above our stateroom. We were awakened at 2am to the sounds of chairs and tables being dragged across the floor for over 30 minutes THEN someone dropped the power washer over the side of the ship and it sprayed our balcony (we had the balcony door open and had to get out of bed and run to shut the door).. Unfortunately, the poole deck was being resurfaced so our day at the pool was not pleasant, we listened to the sounds of the power sanders the whole time.

Buffets were mediocre - LeBistro was wonderful - Cagney's was great if you ordered the filet - poor if you ordered the New York Strip
