Traveled with children

Unfortunately, the one thing I will probably remember most is the hideous decor of this ship: pink circles everywhere along with black tile with green grout; flashing signs with lettering that changed colors; odd shapes and disjointed visuals. If Salvador Dali had designed Atlantic City it would probably look like this. Several cruisers remarked that they would have skipped the cruise if they'd known it would be like spending 2 weeks in Las Vegas.

All of which is too bad because the ship has some nice features. Our balcony cabin was spacious, well-lighted, and exceptionally clean. The bathroom was roomy and bright. The flat-screen TV was a great touch.

The removable roof over the main pool was outstanding. Even in the North Sea the pool deck was enjoyable thanks to this feature. When the weather cleared, the sky-roof retracted to let the sunshine and fresh air in. Outstanding!!

Cabin Review

Very spacious. Roomy bathroom. Nice balcony but snug. Comfy beds. Great flat screen TV. Lots of noise 24/7 coming from what sounded like adjoining work areas (metal banging, carts rolling, footsteps, etc)
