Embarkation took a while but moved once we were called to get on. Went directly to add guests to a specialty restaurant (since you can't book "comped" peopled) and was told I couldn't keep the original reservation time. Had to change the date and time, food was terrible in la Cucina, lobster mushy, iced tea warm, pizza practically had a non-existant crust. Balcony very small, shower pressure was not great, confied space for 4 people in a balcony room but made the best of it. Soups delicious. Food mediocre. Drinks automatically given a surcharge, so if it's a $5.25 bottle of beer, costs you $7.25. Shows good but you don't need reservations anymore, which is annoying. People show up 1 hour early and there aren't many seats. Boat to GSC is ridiculous. By the time you can finally get on it, by the time you reach the island, you have to walk forever to find a lounge chair. BBQ burgers burnt and dry. Ship doesn't stop rocking back and forth at all. When you are docking at a port, the entire room shakes. You are also now charged $7.95 for room service. Insane. Hard to find a lounge chair near the 1 pool on board (1 pool for 3,000 guests???) unless you are on deck at 8AM. Drinks watered down, stick to beers, they are bottled. Art show was a joke. They didn't treat you very nicely. Spa was nice. To buy extra products to use at home, expensive. Gym crowded. Striploin steak delicious. Nutella pudding shouldn't be missed. Getting off the boat at a port was a mad house. Everyone was in a rush. It was a nice get-away, but not one I care to duplicate.
