Review summary

The chef was great and the food in both the dining room and buffet were excellent. We enjoyed the entertainment - they had quite a variety in the bars and on stage. We liked the small ship and met several people that we really enjoyed. We were in stateroom 8000 and had issues with cigarette smoke in the room and heavy in the hallway for way too many days and nights. The smoke seems to comes down the stairs from the smoking area on the pool deck because the door sticks open. The bed was really awful and there is only set seating where you sit with the same people night after night. People complained the early dining 5:45 was too early and 7:45 was too late.

Don't get a cabin on 8 in the front in less you are a smoker. Nice size room but awful bed.

Ship tip

Try the Chef's table. It was the most amazing experience. It cost $99 per person but you would have pain $400 for a dinner like it. The food was spectacular and the wine good. The dinner also included a gift of a picture of the group and a personal picture with the chef - also a signed $50 cookbook
