This was our first cruise and it would have been great except that we both are susceptible to motion sickness and despite our attempts at curtailing the problem (i.e. patches, dramamine, Bonine, SeaBands, Ginger gum, etc. etc.) we still felt ill and became ill in one instance. We don't know if the ship was unusual rough this sailing as we didn't know what to expect. My guess it was a pretty normal cruise.

Loved the ship, very pretty, very well kept, and our cabin 13020 was great, a suite penthouse with large balcony overlooking the mid-ship pool on Deck 13. We loved it!

The food was decent, not extraordinary by any means. Staff was accommodating, although our butler would rather we "do it ourselves" than bother her with two much interaction. Although she gave us lots of pointers on how to do things for ourselves....?

Spacious cabin with a great deck overlooking the pool action, very quiet despite its location. Would highly recommend this to any couple or maybe 3 people who aren't particularly private about their accomodations as you are visible to virtually everyone in the pool area. We thought it was great listening to the bands and actually ordering drinks from our balcony and having the Key West Grill bartenders accomodate us!
