We cruise once a year. This was the first with our teenage granddaughter. What a beautiful ship, huge! Embarking was a breeze. As we were tired and hungry, we immediately headed for the Windjammer cafe. It was so crowded, the food almost gone, no tables to sit. Not a good start.
As we got settled in and evening approached, we waited for the cabin stewart to make up the couch for our granddaughter. To our surprise, the couch did not open, but instead a bed was opened up from the wall, right on top of our bed! It was very small, too small for a teen. The ladder prevented anyone from getting in and out of bed except by crawling across the other person. My granddaughter fell off the ladder one night getting out of bed to use the bathroom, cut her head open. As the cabin steward left the bed down all week, my husband and I bumped our heads on it many times. Never again!
As the week progressed, we found the shows to be excellent, the food good. We also enjoyed the entertainment provided by the waiters and chefs in Leonardo's restaurant. They sang for us several times, and were very friendly and accommodating, they made dinner a true joy! We also appreciated the special salad station at lunch each day.
Our granddaughter enjoyed ice skating, the flowrider, mini golf, and the Club where she made many friends.
Disembarking was also very well planned and went fast.
