Review summary

First it is an amazing ship. The technology may be a little over the top. From the first reviews I had read about you can clearly see the improvement in the function of the staff. They were friendly and helpful but you can see they were stressed out due to the many glitches.  The food on board with the exception of the Solarium restaurant was excellent. We did latch on to one waiter in the Coastal restaurant who went way beyond a high standard of service. The ports we good however you have to be very careful when leaving or returning to the ship. They keep you ships time not the island time, this caused some problems for those who booked non RCCL excursions.  The one thing I would complain about is that too much technology is not a good thing. everyone was walking around Ipads or Iphones in hand and bumping into you. You should not text and cruise. Where was the down time for vacation if you were constantly doing texts and emails. We were disturbed at the pool as people on phones were talking very loudly . The shows were over the top and hopefully they will be adding more to fill up the number of days on board Dynamic dining is ok as long as you get your reservations done it time. I did miss the interaction of a main dining room. 

Would definitely do  a ship like this again
