Sail Date: May 2012
Cabin: Large Ocean View Stateroom

This ship has been recently refurbished and is beautiful and functional. The attitude and service level of the crew and staff could not have been more delightful, courteous, and outstanding. The Ship's Captain is an extremely no-non-sense, experienced and professional individual--generates a lot of confidence regarding his capabilities, commitment to his profession and to safety--very, very impressive professional.

Food and dining options were fine. Entertainment on some nights as an "A"; other nights a "B".

DOWNSIDE: 1. The TV choices on this ship are awful--so bad that we will never use Royal Caribbean again. Our waiter agreed with us and said, "Please, please put this in your comments; we live on this ship and we know how awful the TV is." I discussed this with several key crew officials. They know and it is not a priority to them. One comment: "We have a limited entertainment budget and we choose to use it on quality showtime entertainers and not on paying for better TV programming." Nuts! NCL has as good of onboard entertainment as we have ever seen AND they have CNN and other good TV programming. (On Vision of the Seas, you get NO U.S. news--we went almost three weeks with no info about our home country.) A few TV shows or movies are played over and over again; e.g., One episode of "The Good Wife" played 4 times a day every day. We enjoy relaxing to TV on certain evenings or certain afternoons during sea days but not on this ship.
