I'll start with the bad to get it out of the way. There were only 2 things that I felt were bad on this cruise. The first and foremost being the smell of sewage on some areas of the deck. I am assuming they had some kind of ventilation issue. The second thing was the ship is staring to show its age. It is ready for dry-dock. I think it will get that in 2017.
Now for the good. Every staff member I came across was very friendly and helpful. This was especially true for our waiter and assistant waiter in the Coral dining room. Milorad and Daryl. Milorad always gave us suggestions and I think I went with his suggestions all but once. And they were always spot-on. Daryl would always have our drinks figured out without us even having to order them. Our cabin steward was always friendly and helpful. He greeted us by our first names by the first afternoon. Some would find that offensive, but I find it friendly.
The production shows were excellent. "Bravo" was probably the best show I have ever seen on my 9 cruises. I wanted to see it for the second showing as well. We never had a problem with seating, but we did go to the shows quite early. They do fill up quickly. My wife go to perform on the big stage the final night and we got the opportunity to meet many of the production staff. They were all very friendly and down to earth. Not like you would expect. The comedian was hysterical and the magician was good as well.
