The cruise started with the easiest check-in I can remember. We found our interior cabin to be larger than expected and on a deck that was high and easy to everything. The cabin was clean and modern. Our cabin server was great and very helpful - no complaints from us. The ship is very nice, but as others have said it is time for refurbishing, but that is hardly something to complain about.
The food was generally good, breakfast was the best and lunch was good too. Dinner had its challenges. We elected the dine any-time and we had to wait a little to be served, but it wasn't that long as we came down after 7 p.m. What did take long was the service at the table. Some nights we just elected to eat at the buffet and that was fine. The meat in general was a little tough, but the chicken was always good. The deserts were great and in general the food was good.
The ports of call were what sold us on the cruise and we enjoyed them all. We were sorry to miss out on the Turks, but the storm caused that. The captain did a great job navigating around the storm so "great job". The entertainment was fine too, we enjoyed the comedian, the ventriloquist, and the piano player and quartet.
The staff was were friendly and I can't remember better. After reading previous reviews of this ship, my husband and I were far less critical. We never felt like the ship was crowded. Frankly, we enjoyed the cruise and would choose this cruise line and ship again.
