Our outside cabin was great - spacious, heaps of storage space, excellent bathroom with non-stick shower screen and screened toilet. Buffet offered great choices but the decor needs updating. Some dishes were very salty. The pub restaurant was a nice place to dine or have a coffee and watch the atrium entertainment but choices were very limited, and service was very slow (almost non existent) during busy times. The desert offered were very limited and poor choices that never changed. The Asia restaurant was a good change. The shows were excellent but some of the seats were very uncomfortable. The pool area lacked the space for fun activities - they should remove the yellow monster water slide. Some live entertainment daily in this area would have livened up the atmosphere. the main pool was a great size and temperature for those wanting to do some laps. The speciality coffee was just OK but expensive. No sauna unless you paid $300. The casino was very large and staff were very friendly. Very nice decore throughout the ship except for the cafeteria. Plenty of smoking areas. Shore excursions expensive. Overall, a very enjoyable experience.
