Chose this cruise to get a break from our cold local weather. Check in was Quick and easy, as it was almost 4 PM. Had the steward separate the twin beds which opened up the middle of the cabin. First time in a non balcony room, but it worked out fine. Enjoyed the food. Ate in La Cucina and La Bistro, which is our favorite. Enjoyed the carving station at the buffet and the fresh fruit every morning. The ice cream bar in the evening was a hit for us. The bar b q on 12 was also very good. Excellent ribs. Found the entertainment to be excellent. We especially liked the show of Tim the comedian. Have seen him before and found him quite entertaining. We did not catch his late show. We enjoyed all the extra entertainment around the ship, especially on decks 6 and 7. The trivia shows were traffic stopping. I always stopped and listened. Debarkation was a drag. Walking through the endless maze of zig zag lines was tiring. Looking forward to our next cruise.

Good winter getaway.
