Sail Date: Feb 2014

Magnificent ship. Decorated beautifully. Almost 3000 passengers but never really felt like it. The ship is so big, so many things to do, that people are spread out. On sailing days - we had 3 - the sun deck/pool is crowded. But we never had a problem at the restaurants or dining rooms (there are 3 and they serve the same menu but me he's change each night). Cagney's Steakhouse was great and worth the money. The Illusionarium was great, but eat beforehand or plan on it after. The pub O'Sheehan's is 24 hours and the food is great. The Garden Buffet food is good/acceptable yet repetitious. Burn The Floor dance show is sexy, hot, totally a must see. Didn't go see Legally Blond so I can't comment on that production. Warning: they make you reserve seats for everything even if it is free admission. Kinda annoying. You have to check the daily planner for what is going on that night and go reserve your tickets. Warning: poster night was the night of the first full day. We had no idea, thought it would be later in the week, and we were disappointed. It had a small mention in the planner that we missed.

We had 2 adjoining studio suites. The closet system is great except you have to move the cube seat to open closet door to access the safe. The toilets are loud and you can hear them in your direct vicinity. Bed is very comfy. I wish the shower was a little bigger but it is doable for a week.

The staff is great. The drinks were great. Lots of waiters serving drinks. The jogging track is in a bad place where people are walking to get good and relaxing on sun loungers. The casino is big and they have convenient hot/cold food in a corner for east access.

Cabin Review

Very functional once you put your clothes away and stow your suitcase under the bed. Shower is okay but small. You must move the cube seating to open closet door to access safe. Toilets are noisy. Heard some weird rolling cart sounds in middle of the night. Bed very comfy. Bring your own hair dryer. There is one in room but it would take a full day to actually dry your hair with it.
