Shower curtains on a billion dollar ship-really. Ship was beautiful but the main showroom was lacking-did not have a real showroom feel. The food was good but not outstanding-overall B- although there were some bright spots--Afredo's Italian Restaurant was excellent-as was the prime rib dinner. Steaks and other meats such as lamb chops were lower quality cuts and in some cases were as tough as shoe leather. The buffet on the 16th deck was adequate and you never had a problem finding a table, The entire crew were friendly and efficient.  The string quartet was excellent.

Rather small but good closet space. Were unable to use the internet in our stateroom. The veranda is one of the smallest ones I have ever seen. It was disappointing to see shower curtains that translated into wet floors as the water escaped the small shower area. The room was well insulated and quiet. The TV worked great. The comfort of the bed was a little disappointing.

Ship Tip

Just enjoy the ship-other than the pool on sea days you will never feel crowded. Check out the timing of your dinner time preference as there is not exactly any time dining. In some cases you needed reservations. If you travel as a couple I would advise sharing an 8 top table for dinner. You will me
