I have read some of the criticisms of this new ship .....and yes, I can see what some people were writing about ......the very few minor annoyances .....BUT COME ON !!! REALLY ??? This Billion Dollar ship was a joy to be on for 2 weeks !!!!.......Yes, I did see a couple of little things ....but what I saw more was the hundreds upon hundreds of wonderful touches on this ship - the art work, the fantastic intricate musical instruments theme all around the ship - such as the harp metal work in the main foyer or the violin side walls all along the entertainment areas ....unbelievable concepts and workmanship - the gorgeous specialty restaurants, the breath taking piano and blues entertainment lounges ... I could go on and on but just go on line and check out the beauty of this wonderful new ship. I think some people just enjoy being critical ....it seems to give them a sense of purpose or perhaps they see themselves and some sort of international critics .... but any normal reasonable person would not focus on the few little things and ignore the mind bogling beauty of this ship and it's decor. It is an environment that cost over one billion dollars and it was a joy to be on it ........ The food was great .....not just good ....but great .......we have cruised on 24 ships - mostly H.A. ships and the only other ships that had food as good as this were the Niew Amsterdam and the Rotterdam.....

Fantastic Ship - Great Food - Exceptional Staff
