The ship is in nice condition overall. Showing a bit of wear and tear on some furniture but not bad. Service and attitude of crew very good. I have taken over a dozen cruises and found this to be one of the better ones as far as food and service. Ship seemed sold out and there were long lines during embarkation and debarkation. Mostly older passengers as expected. There were some lines in the Lido buffet for food. Food in the dining room much better quality and ate most of the meals there. Flexible dining times worked well with no waiting. Only enjoyed two of the shows which were singing and dance. Did not like the juggler but many people did. Good cruise director, charming and seemed to have a varied and full entertainment schedule. We had rough seas over two days and we both were sea sick briefly. We were going at a high rate of speed in order to do a 7 day Southern Caribbean which I think contributed to this.
