This cruise was convenient after a work conference at Tampa Embarkation was a little slow but organized into groupings, we still got on board in an hour or so. We had the free at sea, the beverage package was nice. We missed the pop machines on Royal Caribbean, you had to wait at the bar for a soda and they did not have bottled water which would have been convenient. The entertainment was constant, primarily in the atrium area. The dance show in the evening, Burn the Floor was great! We found the buffet not quite as good as we experienced with Royal Caribbean, but the evening specialty dining was outstanding! Cagney's Steak House was certainly a front-runner , we also enjoyed the Italian and French restaurants. Other evenings we ate in the main dining hall which had an outstanding menu. The pool area was lots of fun, music much of the time, i frequented the adult pool which was cool but refreshing. We received $50 off per cabin for shore excursions, but i found them over-priced so i don't know that it was a good deal The fitness area was very nice, two large rooms of cardio and weight equipment, much better than Royal Caribbean! Disembarkation was about half an hour, we were off by 9 a.m., we chose to walk off with our suitcase. Overall a great experience!

Great cruise
