Pros: Rooms - The room layout with the bed to the center of the room, allowed us to sit at the window and enjoy the views. A refrigerator was a plus. Housekeeping was good. Food - Main dining service was good. Entertainment - Very good. First rate comedian two nights, good production numbers two other nights. Lots of nice lounges and seating areas. Great walking deck on deck 7/8. Just OK: Casino, pools, shops, main dining food. Cons: Buffet food was one star over institutional (think hospital, jail or Carnival). Main dining food better than Carnival, but not as good as Royal. Shower in cabin was handheld, no place to hang up the shower head. Weird cloth curtain in shower. Towels like a fine grit sand paper. Lack of announcements and key information was problematic. Drink staff around the ship were poor in performance and kind of grumpy. Worst: The Internet. It is almost fraud to actually charge for something so terrible. They should be ashamed and the head of IT needs to go back to school. It didn't work in some locations ( i.e. the room), getting to email or messaging took forever and ate up minutes. Blocks of minutes just disappeared. A complete rip off.
