Review SummaryEnjoyed the quick and efficient boarding process. This was the best I have ever experienced on any cruise. We had a balcony room for 3 guests. It was rated for 4 guests, however I am hard pressed to believe that 4 adults could maneuver in this room at the same time. The balcony was an added bonus, but it only had 2 chairs. We added the "desk" chair so that the 3 of us could sit on the balcony at the same time. The food left a lot to be desired. I was not expecting a 5 star experience, but at least a different daily menu would have been nice. It was the same every day in the main dining rooms and the cafe. We chose to eat in 3 of the specialty restaurants which added to our cost, but was preferable to the cookie cutter menu offered in the other venues. The best specialty restaurant was LeBistro. It was the best meal we had during the trip. I would rate it 4 stars. The staff was terrific. Friendly, helpful and courteous. The layout of the ship was difficult to maneuver. Some trips on board took 2 elevator changes to arrive at your destination. Tiny casino with very tight slots was a negative. Way too many penny slots. The Galleria was 2 shops; jewelry and an all purpose store (liquor, make-up, souvenirs, clothes, etc. Everything but the casino closed down by 11:30 pm. Too many overlapping events which lasted only 1 hour so you couldn't go from one to another and keep the night going. White Hot night was the best night event, but was over and done way too early. We looked around and were the only one's left in Dazzles at 11 pm. We still wanted to dance some more but there was no place to go. The ports we stopped at were fun and had many options available for activities. Disembarkation was as flawlessly handled as boarding. They are very efficient with this process.
