The ship is fairly new and looks to be in great shape. The staff were fairly attentive. Entertainment was mixed. Music and dance were pretty good, but the comic and magician were so so. We liked the live music in the common areas of the ship. The food was good at Sabatini's restaurant and also at Alfredo's. The pizza by the pool was also great. Embark / dis-embark was really fast. Tenders worked out well. Here are a few of my beefs: - The food in the main dining room was kind of cold and service was particularly slow some evenings . Girlfriend got food poisoning one evening - likely from the seafood. - Even in port, the 16th floor dining area (buffet) had an constant eerie vibration. I didn't notice this elsewhere on the ship - The excursions were just ok. In Croatia we couldn't hear the guide and noticed other tours had remote communication devices, which we really could have benefited from.

Nice ship / dining is so-so

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BE E704
Don't book this cabin. It is directly above a swinging door that slams shut. All day and night, people opened and closed the door and it made a lot of noise.
