We crossed on a T/A the month before on the Epic, so this ship felt smaller. We sailed on a T/A on the sister ship the Jade last year, but again, this ship felt smaller. The entertainment was so-so, It's been better and bigger with more sets and staging on other ships in the fleet, but the grand finale was a real knockout! The atrium was small and there are never enough chairs. Plenty of smoking areas throughout the ship. The buffet was smaller than on other ships and had its areas of specific cuisines, but the food was excellent and very tasty and the restaurants had excellent food and service. Washy, Washy, Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy at all entrances to the restaurants and on and off the ship at excursion time. We really like that attention to passenger concern. We also really like sitting out in the Great Outdoors anytime of the day or evening and taking snacks or a quick meal. Our room steward was great and a really nice guy from Honduras.

Cabin Review

Inside
Cabin IX 4509
We had a guaranteed cabin and were put on deck four forward. Every morning there was a lot of muted banging and clanking around us. One morning I thought someone was knocking on our door with three sharp raps and I jumped out of bed. The room was a usual room, it had more electrical outlets than on the other ships in the fleet.I would have like to have the Account summary on the TV but it is not present on this ship.
