Review summary

As a new ship, it had some kinks to work out. They brought experienced staff from other ships to smooth the transition. Does not ride as well as the Regal Princess. The officers were out and about with the captain in frequent appearance as well. The itinerary was exceptional and great for an active person. We loved it. We went with friends we met on the Regal Princess so it enhanced our trip.
