Entertainment and food was disappointing. Itenerary was exceleent but even that could be tweaked. The service however, was top notch. Everything, was included in the price, EXCEPT everything that was not  included which was most things, inclduing internet. Much older crowd than we are used to and we are in our fifties.

We still prefer Royal Carribean, they just didn't have the right itnerary in our time frame.

No problem with the room. Nice size and we actually had a full view. (we received a free upgrade.) Decor was clean but a bit old. The cabin steward was fabulous.
