The ship is in very good shape, and looks beautiful. The design is augmented from the HAL Vista class, but it retains all the charm, and does not feel crowded. The changes such as the Lincoln Center stage with four piece chamber orchestra, and the Tamarind bar and restaurant among others are a success. The open deck area on top of the Tamarind complex is really cool. The staff is efficient hard working, and quite friendly. It really feels like a happy ship. The food was really good, and NYC pizza outlet was superb. The pizza was a thin crispy crust, and the toppings were delicious. Key West was a fun stop, with lots of shops, restaurants, and activities. The area is beautiful and fun. Turks and Caicos was fun, but the weather was cloudy, windy, and rainny (rare but it does happen) Amber Cove was a disappointment as there is no beach, and the water was dirty, and stinky. The excursion in Puerto Plata showed an old dilapdlated town, with little to see. Half Moon Cay us a beautiful little island, with an awesome beach. The only negative was a strong smell of paint, from painting the next balcony which prevented the use of our balcony for three days. It was just bad timing as I understand ship maintenance is important. Looking forward to sailing the Eurodam again,

Very enjoyable cruise
