We loved our cruise. The service was great and the ship was beautiful. We enjoyed the shows especially the ventriloquist and the comic. The only problem we had was with as you wish dining. The only time we could get to sit alone was 5:15 and sometimes we wanted to go a little later, but later you had to share a table. My husband and I like to sit alone at a table for two as well as share occasionally. However, unless we went at 5:15 we were not given the option. Everything else was great and to our liking.
