Chose this ship as usually cruise with Princess and wanted a change. As Australians who had been to most of the ports it was more for rest and relaxation than for new experiences. I had read many reviews of this ship and was concerned that we may be disappointed with the food and the decor. Not at all. Overall the food was very good but occasionally we had dishes in the buffet that could have been hotter. Menus in the dining rooms were varied and service was efficient.
Staff were excellent and so friendly and helpful. Our cabins were smaller than some I've had on other ships, as was the balcony, but spotlessly clean with comfy beds.
Entertainment was varied and most performances were excellent, particularly String Fever and the balancing duo. Theatre was large and always managed to get a good seat.
Bathroom small but didn't expect it to be otherwise. Great shower with a sliding glass door. So much better than a shower curtain.
