No issues. No waits.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Food was good for the most part except last couple of days when it seemed they were running out of food and the options weren't the best.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Lots to do but I didn't do much other than art auctions. Spent way too much money LOL

General Store

4 out of 5

I really wish the ship offered more in their store... snacks, candy bars, drinks, etc... and a larger variety of clothing sizes. Only good for women if you're smaller sizes.

We saw an Olympic athlete doing some long scarf acrobatics which was amazing, and then a singer, Earl Turner, who was just incredible. Went to see his show twice!!!
