We chose it because you could not beat the price. Our mini-suite was wonderful-just enough room and always clean. The food was good and plentiful but we thought the quality was average. Also,certain items that you would have on a general dining menu were missing on this cruise(shrimp cocktails and lobster dishes). Entertainment was top-notch. A different show every night.The variety of entertainment was very good throughout the day. Service was excellent. First time on a cruise and small wait lines at guest services. Everyone was friendly. Captains and Chiefs pitching in when needed.
We did not go on any shore excursions through the cruise line so no comment .Embarkation went very smoothly.Disembarkation was not as smooth and took longer than expected, but this might have been because of the Port-not sure. Ocean was very smooth the first 3 days at sea and moderately rough the next two but not to any green-gill stage.Overall a great experience for a really great price!
