Ever been on a cruise where you cry halfway through because you NEVER want it to end? Food- Amazing. 80% of the time I get on a cruise, I dread going to the buffet. Usually because it's TERRIBLE. Here, it was amazing. Full ice-cream bar, lots of fruit ready for the pool. Crew- Also pretty grand. Not too overly friendly where you want to strangle them, but still awesome. The washy washy girl? HILARIOUS. If you go to the Garden Cafe, there'll be a friendly Asian girl standing there saying Washy Washy. Here's what you say: Her: Washy washy! You: Happy Happy! Her: Smiley Smiley! You: All the time! Her: No sleeping! Well anyway, if you want to start a conversation with the crew, do it. They're friendly and usually talk to you. Only rude if you're underage at a bar (no money) or at an expensive shop (underage). Otherwise, they treat you more like a servant. (I swear the whole ship had a pact on calling me "Princess".) Met nicer crew staff, but still had the time of my life! The people were absolutely AMAZING. Never met better. I still talk to half of them. The activities pretty cool. Not a WHOLE lot on the itinerary. but a lot to do on your own. More reliant on your own stuff. Honestly, I've been on dazzling ships (Try the Celebrity Equinox...whooo-eee) crappy-a** ships (Norwegian Sky, need I say more?) and more of "fun" ships. Let me tell you, I've never had more of a blast than on this one. Mixed it all together perfectly. Oh and the shops were pretty great. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lv_Cw0aGF_Q

Cabin review:

I had one of the value cabins. You don't spend much time in your room anyway, right? The only time my room saw me was between 1am and 8am, and that's 7 hours of sleeping.
