Got a great price for balcony room. Cabins bigger than expected and serviced beautifully. Dining room - awesome food & service and entertainment mid dinner was fantastic. The ship was awesome, clean and friendly staff. Entertainment needs a bit of a shakeup. The sound needs seriously looking at during performances in Pharoahs Lounge. The oncrew singers sounded dreadful most of the time. Dancing and stage effects were great. Some of the comedy was great. The serenity area (adults only) too small (couldn't get a lounge in sun - taken mainly by adults with young children on board) and directly under the noisy screams of kids using the waterslides. Maybe need to bring in entry to adults area by sail card and if children under 13 assigned to your room - no entry. Would never go on this ship during school holidays (unless with my own grandkids) Cost of drinks too high. Bingo far too expensive and 3 games - line only, 1 game - 2 lines, 1 game - full house.

Enjoyable

I found the cabin to be of a great size, bigger than I expected. Service of cabins was excellent.
