The ship itself was very good but as reviewed before the dress code was very poor and I remember one night in the top restaurant the guy at the next table had T shirt shorts and thongs on and this was when the advertised dress for men was a minimum of a jacket. Getting on and off was no problem and there were never any long lines.The biggest problem was visiting India where it was $100 for a visa and you had to jump through hoops to get and then have to front up to an indian official on the ship while he checked you were really you.....never Seen it before. Another problem was anytime dining if you did not book your time the day before you could only get in at 6 0 pm or 8 45 pm that night,so much for anytime. I am not to sure if the outside pool will be really popular as it is next to the kids waterworld and some of those kids can scream. Plenty of deckchairs so you will not miss out there. Like most cruises the entertainment ranged from really good to "what retirement home is this guy from" Overall pretty good, with the cabins a bit bigger but short on hanging space,the shower was excellent

Not bad, but could improve.
