Review summary

Getting on the ship went smoothly.  I had an interior cabin with a queen bed.  The bed was very comfortable and although the room is small, there was plenty of space for clothing and accessories.  Did not like the shower curtain - much prefer other ships that had a plastic sliding door system.  Also water pressure in the shower was very low.  Food was very good and very tasty without tons of salt.  Loved the fact that there was very limited smoking allowed on the ship (only on deck 18 aft and small part of casino).  I have been on cruise lines that allowed smoking on one side  of the ship's pool decks and it always blows my way!  Loved the cabanas around adult pool - truly a relaxing and luxurious feature.  The entertainment was great and loved the 3 deck piazza.  There was always something interesting going on.  Disembarkation was also smooth, easy and I did not feel "rushed" to get off the ship.   Would highly recommend this cruise.

Beautifully decorated. Loved that we were able to eat our meals out side on the back of the ship off the Horizon court

Cabin / Stateroom

Did not like shower curtain - prefer sliding type shower doors. Also water pressure was very low in the shower. Plenty of room for clothes and accessories. Would prefer not to walk right into the bed area. Prefer other ships where you walk into a small "hallway" with the bathroom and closets close to the door and the bed removed from hallway noises

Ship tip

Loved the specialty restaurants - tried both Sabatini's and the Crab Shack. Loved them both. Definitely recommend renting a cabana around adult pool. Totally relaxing and luxurious.
