We were nervous about this ship as we usually prefer Radiance class ships which are rather smaller but the ship was fantastic and the entire cruise was great. We never felt that the ship was too big, and the ambiance and the extra facilities were wonderful. The shows were outstanding and the use of new technologies helped immensely . Really enjoyed the abyss and water slides with no queues but I feel the lack of these was down to the nine days at sea any less would have meant that you would not have time to enjoy all the ships facilities, a seven day port intensive cruise would not be long enough for this ship in my opinion . Food and service was good as usual with RCI and the choice for coeliacs is ever expanding which is good to see. The only change I found this time was that my food is now served separately in the main dining room often causing a delay with my fellow diners which could cause problems. I am unsure if this is new RCI policy or just our waitress being extra cautious. We would certainly take this class of ship again if one comes to Europe, hopefully once they have built the new fourth vessel in this class.
Excellent second back from the aqua theatre with good view of shows and the sea, but not possible to watch films from the balcony as abyss tubes block view
