5 stars  Like others have said, you really don't feel like 6000 people are on this ship, except at muster time. our ship was 100% full too. We are experienced cruisers and this was our best cruise yet.

Great food - We ate in the MDR 6 of the 7 nights and at Johnny Rockets once. For breakfast we ate in the solarium every day. Very peaceful!

The ships water was fantastic - don't spend $$ on bottled water or bring it onboard.

Ship was clean...everywhere we turned someone was cleaning something.

There is so much to do every day. Entertainment was great. I only got to see 1 show due to there being so much else to do but that was great - Aquatheater!

Cabin - excellent - see my review below.

Fitness facilities were great. We used every day and lost weight on the cruise.

Did not use spa facilities.

Casino - Great. Slots had nice payouts, same as land casinos

Staff - Great

There were always plenty of deck chairs in the sun and in the shade. Deck patrol was frequent and moved towels that were just placed after 30 minutes.

Don't hesitate to cruise this ship!

One word of caution - before you get caught up in those sales on the promenade....they are counting on you not to price double check. We purchased a nice watch discounted from $250 to $135. I got home and checked amazon and it's $87.00 there. Because there is no easy internet available that would have been good to know. Buyer beware ! ;-)

Cabin review:

Room was amazing. Much bigger than we expected because it's a forward room with the window on a 45 degree angle adding a lot square footage to the stateroom. Floor to ceiling window overlooking the helipad. You will love this cabin! Plenty of room for two people. These rooms are often highly discounted too because they are considered obstructed. There was nothing obstructing our view at all except the helipad? we could see beyond it and it felt like you were steering the ship. Because of the stabilizers on this ship there was not a lot of rocking at all. (which some folks experience at the front) Don't hesitate to book this room. Bed is by the closet not the window, fyi
