The ship is high tech on the high seas. Arrived at port of liberty at 1015 am and was on the ship at noon. There is no special advantage to being a diamond member since people sit in relation to time scheduled by the computer assigned to you. No bus ride the ship and platform to deck 5 are there. The ship is beautiful and has such features as bumper cars, North star skydiving ,the circus swing roller skating etc. The negative is the time to wait to do any of theses activities is long . For example, waited 40 minutes for a five minute bumper car ride. Skydiving requires a 1 hr class for a minute free ride.
The staff is fine but they have not jelled together. Many unclean dishes and plates lying around. Chairs in solarium and butted together so to max people sitting but uncomfortable to get into.
Food was excellent and shops were overpriced high end. Crew mostly Chinese since ship will redeploy to china. I felt we were the trial runs for the crew to take care of. restaurants seemed chaotic at times due to those who had reservations and others who did not.
Overall good time on the ship. Shows were fine and exotic. Momma mia great. Excellent singers and dancers. cabin had virtual balcony but audio was off some nights. good space and design.
Cabin was 178 sq ft and had nice bathroom and flat screen tv. Virtual balcony was great but audio of the sea sounds didnt work a few nights. Made several calls to fix it and finally after 2 days it was done. staff was good and kept room clean at all times
