It has a replica of Central park two floors up from the Promenade--a two story mall at the center of the ship! Many venues to eat and some great specialty restaurants (but steer clear of Samba Grill--the meat is not good--and its a churrascaria!) However all the others are terrific and the dining room served the best food of any Royal Caribbean ship I have been on (23 cruises with RCCL) It's a fantastic experience for couples, families and singles--there is really something for everyone including Latin Bar-dance club off the promenade and Karaoke stage night club/bar...along with the traditional Champagne and Schooner bars... The casino is the largest I have ever seen on a cruse ship--even larger than some in Las Vegas..... At the back of the ship off the promenade deck is a Coney Island Boardwalk with a working Carousel, "Zoltar" machine for fortune telling, and other fun activities including Johnny Rockets, Rita's Cantina and a hot dog stand that sells 6 different styles and buns.... The open air walk also has a pool and high diving boards for the aqua show...Ocean Aria --great! My favorite show was Blue Planet--the combined casts from Chicago and Ocean Aria perform must see performances on a beautiful stage with great lighting, effects and costumes. My family and I were blown away by this ship --plan all your eating and entertainment ahead of time to avid any lines...Considering the number of people onboard, (6,000)--embarking,boarding and disembarking was the quickest and smoothest I have ever experienced. There are so many pools for adults and all ages you don't really feel overwhelmed by a lot of people crowding you all at one time. I never had a problem getting a chair outside on the pool deck..... The gym is extensive and the spa is beautiful and relaxing--I also really enjoyed the Solarium for some peace and quiet.. Enjoy this ship--wherever it goes--you won't be sorry....
