This was a relaxing trip. The anytime dining was frustrating as you got conflicting info for making reservations from the crew. We  found just getting there early was easier the waiting on hold for reservations. The service was good, food was OK. The selections were basic cruise fare I had a hamburger one night as that was the best selection for me.

They do still have lobster the 2nd formal night.

The shows fill up fast, there was no adult comedy.

The on deck movies were OK.

The buffet was a safe place to get food  that you had a selection and was good for buffet food.

Embarkation and debarkation was pain less.

Ship Tip

Make anytime dining reservations by phone early they only take 20% reservations. Happy hour is 3:00 - 4:00 in the wheelhouse bar buy one the second is a dollar. There is one night of no smoking in the casino. The theatre 6th floor entrance usually has seats down in front.
