We have only cruised once before and that was with RCI so thats the only comparison I have. The price for the cruise was excellent so we went right ahead.
Embarkation was really easy and quick. First impressions were fantastic till we saw the atrium, what a let down, it looked like an afterthought, very disappointing. Our cabin and steward were fantastic, spotlessly clean as were all the public areas.
We had any time dining and yes one one night we had to wait around 40 mins but hey everyone went at the same time. The food was good and we do not have any complaints there. The lido marketplace was fantastic and better than the equivalent on RCI. The food was plentiful and fresh no complaints there either.
Cabin was a huge plus, outside our window was the deck 9 fwd viewing srea a little deck we had almost exclusively to ourselves.we could see the sunset and arrivals / departures as we awoke.
