Heard a lot about this ship so was anxious to see what it offered. Unfortunately the ship was experiencing a mechanical problem that forced the line to completely drop the itinerary of St Thomas and St Martin and stick us with Nassau and Cozumel. Did we want to go to those ports - no - but we decided to make the best of the situation. Because the ship arrived back to Port Canaveral two hours late, we spent almost two hours waiting in line to board the ship. That was totally a lousy way to start the cruise. We hoped things would get better and they did. We were on a cruise and were going to have fun no matter what. The line gave us $450 shipboard credit and 25% off the cruise portion of a future cruise. Th ship is very large and a rurally too large for my taste but it is a really beautiful ship. The food in the dining room was good - not great but good. The buffet was very good. The pizza in the pizza restaurant on Main Street was terrible. The rooms were comfortable, bedding and beds really comfy and shower roomy and with curved doors. The doors separating each balcony slid to one side so we had one large balcony among our three adjoining rooms. The entertainment was excellent and the ice show fabulous. We had lots of fun, great massages in the spa and in general a great time.

Cabin Review

Cabin
Nice cabin with plenty of storage and room. Comfortable bed and nice bed linens. Towels weren't as soft and really comfy.
