I think many of the most recent reviews, good and bad, were accurate on some level. With the exception of embarkation and disembarkation, which were lightening fast and well organized. Something must have happened in this area because what we experienced was not what I had expected after reading member reviews.
Food reviews appear to be all over the board, either love it or hate. We actually found most meals enjoyable but nothing to write home about. The worst meal was the last night, we both had the tempura mahi mahi and shrimp. It was just plain gross. The thought of it in retrospect makes me shiver. Otherwise, the fish was good as was the prime rib, lobster, etc. We avoided any "steak" after reading bad reviews previously about it being tough, etc.
My review is going to center around DO's and DON'Ts that may help you save time, aggravation, and money.
Ninth floor. Great views, easily accessible. Whiny neighbors that complained about our TV...the walls must be paper thin!!!!
