Cabins are very roomy\, but getting to the closet was tight. Nice sitting area with big sofa. Would have like one chaise lounge on the balcony instead of two chairs. Nice shower with glass shower door. Everything worked well in the cabin and of course the cabin staff was always on top. We sampled most of the complimentary restaurants; Opus Dining Room\, Park Cafe\, Windjammer Buffet\, the donut shop\, Caf Promenade\, Sorrento's Pizza\, Wipe Out Cafe\, and Johnny Rockets for which we paid a cover charge. All the food was delicious. From our \"inside\" balcony overlooking the Boardwalk we were able to watch the events at the aqua theater and climbers on the rock wall and everyone going on the zipline. We watched people play basketball on the courts and we even played nine holes of miniature golf. We also watched kids and adults try their surfing skills on the two flowriders and the ship even has an ice rick for up to 50 people at a time! You need to make reservations for the shows on the first day if not before\, because by the time you get settled in\, you can't get in. Same with specialty dining. One week is not enough time to get to really know and experience the ship. I would advise taking back to back cruises.

The staff\, especially Nicholas and Modesto in the Opus dining room\, are the very best.

Ship Quality

I love the big ship feel. All was in good shape and very clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Everything about the cabin was great except the rather thin mattress is on a wire frame\, no box springs. Also\, the sheets did not fit and became a big mess quickly during the night.

Pros: Variety of things to do\, roominess

Cons: beds
