A few things, you have to set at the same table at the same restaurant every night. That is if you don't want pizza or a hot dog. Chicken strips where always burnt. The bacon was always raw. You have to pay $2.24 for a can of coke. You pay $16.95 for a small mixed drink, $6.00 for a beer. You can buy liquor on the boat at their store but you can not pick it up until the end of the cruise, joke..... Watch out for them charging you a $45.00 tip fee everyday on your bill. They do not bother to tell you that you have to have a picture id when you get off of the boat so that you can get back on. My husband did not have his with him and it was a pain. We were very lucky that I just so happened to have my drivers license on me. They only have two hot tubs and one was always closed. One of the main elevators was broken the whole time we were there. Be ready to do a lot of walking or wait at least 5 to 15 min for an elevator. Our cabin boy was very nice and our waiter Renoldo at the Ecstasy dinning room at 8:15 table 317 was very nice. The food was pretty good at this restaurant most of the time. The t.v. only gives you 10 channels to watch and 5 of them are about the ship, No, weather channel and there are no clocks anywhere even in your room. My daughter got married on the cruise and everything went very well with the weeding. The food was good and the photographer was great!
