This was my first cruise as I was very skeptical about cruising. I finally got on the boat and was absolutely amazed. The boat was beautiful and I found it to be extremely clean and well kept. We chose the my time dining thinking we would enjoy the specialty restaurant. We ate at Giovanni's the first night as was very impressed with the service and the food. We were basically dinning alone maybe one or two other tables. The next night was formal night which we opted for the dinning room. We then ended up eating at the dinning room every other night. It was very good quality food and service. I'm not an adventurous eater and do not usually like buffets but the Windjammer had a great selection and the food was good.
Even with the amount of people on the boat we were always able to find a lounge chair to enjoy the "drink of the day".
We had a stateroom with a seaside balcony and it was well worth the money. We enjoyed the balcony the whole trip.
I could not believe the attention to detail there was on the ship. From the restaurants to the venues to the shopping it was all perfect. The shows were outstanding although we ran into rough seas and several were cancelled. They were all made up by the end of the cruise.
Well by the end of the trip I am now a cruiser! Everyone should experience this ship.
