If you're into cruising, you should love this ship. Tastefully decorated and amazingly designed so it's easy to get around and you rarely sense the crowd that's onboard. The neighborhoods really work. Central Park is tranquil and inviting. There's always something to do on the Promenade, and plenty happening on the sports deck. Food was better than I've had on other cruises. So what's not to like? It's hard to find a quiet, private place. It seems there's always music playing somewhere - often annoyingly loud. There's way too much you have to pay for. One of the joys of cruising used to be having everything included. Maybe because we had a balcony on the Boardwalk, I tended to feel out of touch with the water. I've always loved working out with ocean views - the weight area is in a not very attractive interior area. Staff was great. The cabin felt small. We were a party of three, and it seems there should be a little more room than for a couple.

Cramped feeling. Annoying $12 charge to watch a movie.

Ship Tip

There was always plenty of space in the Opal theater. The Aqua theater filled up for the water shows. Think seriously before taking an interior balcony cabin - I felt out of touch with the water.

It's gotten overcrowded with so many ships in port. Boarding/exiting was easy, though. The area is expensive.

Very nice, secure area. What was annoying was having to pay for almost everything. You couldn't even get a drink of water without buying bottled water!

Pushy locals, didn't feel safe. Do an excursion if you can afford.

Great snorkeling, nice town. Beware of jewelry you buy - it may not be what they claim it is!
