Room Type: Oceanview

The ship 's size allows you to encounter people you meet at other times. The check in staff was not as friendly as other cruise lines. The Reflections dining staff was great but some of the wait staff in the Windjammer were not as friendly. The pool was not accommodating for water aerobics and the chlorine level was sometimes overwhelming. Pool area too small when we had one day @ sea. I was pleased with the cabin and large port hole.

Pros: Friendliness of Cruise Director, cabin steward and waiter and asst. waiter. Good singers!

Cons: Pool, not all wait staff in Windjammer Restaurant were very friendly. A little rocky at times

Service and Staff
Not everyone was very friendly. When I encountered the cruise director the first time, he was very helpful and I did not know who he was at the time. Sometimessome staff did not speak when spoken to.
Had a variety of activities. Spa and fitness center offered 'free" classes as hook to try and get you to buy services.
Cabin / Stateroom
Excellent cabin steward; very attentive to our needs.
