Beautiful new ship...

Piazza grand, spacious and always something going on! With the international cafe and wine bar a great place to have tea, a snack or light lunch and enjoy the entertainment.

Horizon court larger than on other ships, not crowded, plenty of seating and plenty of choices on the food.

The pasty section is fantastic, and you can watch the pastry chefs at work.

The pool area comfortable, the lounges plentiful, we never had problems with no seating available. The couches and table and chairs a definite plus. The movies could be enjoyed, and I must say it was great as there was no smoking in that area. Smoking restricted to several other areas, not around pool.

Dining choices plentiful, for both lunch and dinner.

Entertainment was varied with shows, comedians, music and dancing. It is there for you, it is up to you to partake in what you want. The crew is more than willing to make sure you enjoy your cruise, select what interests you.

We found the room to be spacious, the couch enabled us to sit and relax with our morning coffee, and we liked the table by the couch. Many people talk of the small balconies, we found it spacious enough to sit and relax and enjoy the view. The room has less drawer space than other ships, but the closet space is more than adequate, the shelves in the closet area are great for shirts and sweaters, and the drawers and shelf by the bed are fine for undergarments, night attire and accessories. The bathroom has shelves and a large under sink shelf, again storage for cosmetics not needed daily. The TV easy to see and operate across from the bed. The location of this cabin was great..a short walk to the rear elevators, easy access to Horizon Court, pool, and down to Vista and deck 7 to get to center of ship! This was an 18 day cruise, plenty of storage for us, and I don't pack light!
