Nice cruise to Bermuda. Pool deck was packed most days with folks knee deep trying to get their drinks from the bar since beverage servers were not to be seen. Entertainment was great, food in the buffet was good, and service and food in the dining room was fantastic. Pool area was packed on the sea days and no place to sit. Large smoking area on one whole side made it miserable if you had to be close to them. Gatsby lounge was filled with smoke coming out of the smoking room and it stunk. Don't know why they have that huge room for smokers when they also have the whole side of the pool deck for them. Not much shopping on board. I guess that is because we were headed to Bermuda and there is a lot of small shops at the dock yard. The ship had a lot of movement and I was told it was because one of the stabilizers was out of commission.

Understaffed and over priced beverage services
