We loved the intimacy of Serenade having had several cruises on RCI's larger ships. This cruise made us Diamond so we certainly plan more. Found My Time Dining to be just our thing having always done fixed time dining in the past. Entertainment staff was one of the best led by Cruise Director Topi who we believe is our best experience of a cruise director yet. Loved the Centrum entertainment venue and found the Vintages on board to be even better than most. Staff there appreciated and knew wine better than any ship to date. Cruise director empowered his team effectively and more than we have seen in the past. As usual with RCI, never enough pool chairs and the usual chair hogs in Solarium and evening shows in the theater had more people saving 8-10 seats than we have had in the past. We ate at Izumi several times and thought it to be excellent. Loved the outdoor dining area in back of Windjammer. '
