Odd interior décor - lots of pink and gold. Staff at Casino Bar were fantastic. Ship layout was confusing as we generally got lost all the time - especially when finding restaurants (Gold and Black Pearl). Food on Lido Deck wasn't good - we steered clear of these options. Pinnacle Steak House was fantastic - worth the extra USD35pp - we dined here most nights. Comedy Club was great fun too. Met great people on board. Cruise ports were fun. Managed to buy tours on land - cheaper than buying on board. Cheers! drinks program is worth it - highly recommend even if you don't drink much. Regular drink prices high if you pay as you go. The ship is well kept and clean. Crew are generally helpful and friendly. Onboard shopping is terrible. HEFFY diamonds are too expensive - you can get better deals on land at St Thomas Port. Enjoyed our first cruise experience. Now looking at Celebrity Cruises as heard from other guests that their food and service is exceptional.

Nice Time
