While acknowledging the criticisms from other cruisers I have to say we did not experience any of those problems. We found staff to be friendly and helpful, especially the staff in main dining room and our stateroom attendant. Stateroom was clean and a good size. Entertainment was very good and we had no difficulty getting seats for the shows we wanted to see. Food was good, in our opinion, and we always found something we liked. we only ate lunch in Windjammer but again we thought there was plenty of choice. The only thing we could complain about was the cost of some excursions, especially when they were just dropping off and picking up later. Weather was not always good for sunbathing but we were able to find a sunbed when we wanted one but did notice there were still people leaving towels on sunbeds for long periods! All in all we had a great time.

Enjoyable cruise
