Review summary

GOOD - The ship still looked new, and the staff was very friendly and accommodating across the board. I cannot say enough about the casts of the shows - best I have ever seen on a cruise ship. CONSIDERATIONS - This may not be the ship for you if you are a "foodie". While the dining wait staff was always at the highest level, the quality of the food was not.


2 out of 5
Employees managing the check-in lines would leave without returning causing confusion and delays.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
I ate at a specialty dining option each evening. The service was great at each restaurant, but the food was disappointing for the high surcharge. Avoid the steak house - meat was very tough with no flavor.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
I highly recommend the All Access Tour of the ship. And, the large amount of options on the ship was great to have.


5 out of 5
All of the shows were very entertaining and done at a high level. I especially was amazed at the cast Hairspray and Flight - Broadway quality without a weak link in the entire group.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Great, friendly staff throughout the ship in every venue.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The design of the ship to make you forget about the other 6,000+ people is very innovative. Housekeeping in all common areas was outstanding.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The cabin was a spacious and very quiet. The bed was especially comfortable. It was worth the extra money to get this cabin.

Ship tip

Reserve your restaurants and shows in advance - you competing against a lot of people.

Ports of call

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

4 out of 5
The results of the island re-do were great. The water park looked very impressive, and I really enjoyed sitting on the beach doing nothing.

Nassau, Bahamas Did not visit port

I have to Nassau before and did not want to shop. No excursions interested me.


4 out of 5
Given my class of cabin, I had an expedited process. However, it was not clear where to go after you entered the RC building.
