We primarily choose this cruise for the freestyle plan. We were glad we did. After doing resorts for the past 20 years this was just like being at one except for the fact it was floating! We read many reviews about this ship, and quite frankly we expected the worse. The entire cruise we found ourselves saying over and over, what was all the complaining about? It's a spectacular ship with the most amazing friendly staff. Great food, courteous service and plenty to do. The shows are really well done (Burn the Floor a must see)and the entertainment at the bars are really fun.(for sure venture in to the Ice Bar and if you go see Howl at the Moon once, you will go again...I promise) The rooms are not weird. Just different and worked fine for us. Plenty of storage and room to move around. Again, we read some pretty awful reviews before going on this ship. Seriously, there is nothing bad we can say except for the chair hogs in the morning, but after travelling 20+ years to resorts we are used to this kind of rudeness. Didn't bother us though, there are enough chairs for everyone! Please don't let the bad reviews deter you from booking on this ship. Its truley a fantastic ship with amazing staff.

Pleasently Surprised
