Thought it would be a nice vacation for me and my adult children. Too much time on Sea days. Recommend a one way cruise rather than round trip Seattle. Dining room food was generally good and we had great wait staff.. Evening buffet (after hours) was weak. Seemed like leftovers. Decor seemed dated including staterooms. Needs USB ports. Entertainment seemed to be geared to older adults and my late 20 - something kids were very bored except for the casino. Embarkation and debarkation were fine and well organized. Ship was kept very clean and staff generally very helpful. Spa services were good but did not like the the attempt to sell products after as generally the services are substantially over land prices. Need to have a greater variety for late evening food. Room service menu very limited buyt rooms service was generally prompt as offered. While some people like the "cheesy" nature of cruise directors, and I understand their job, this ship was a little much.
