I have to TOTALLY agree with karena1, with all the negative reviews posted on this ship, I had major reservations with sailing on her. I have to say she was WONDERFUL!!!
Embarkation - Even with a minor problem with taking our picture for the sea pass card. FLAWLESS
Ship - For a ship that was delivered 1989(dry-dock 12/2013), she looks great. Our first time RCCL friends were totally impressed with her. Clean, well maintained, spacious (even at full capacity, she handled it great)
Cabin - Our cabin was on Deck 7, it felt like I was walking into a stateroom that was brand new. It was designed so well that we switch cabins each night with our friends(7138) to have wine and cheese in it before dinner. Once again I have to agree with karena1, the shower was small with a (oh no) shower curtain. It makes you appreciate the Plexiglas doors on the Freedom Class ships. They should consider shower amenities for at least Platinum and higher Crown and Anchor members.
