Everything was incredible and we can't wait to go cruising again! The ship is starting to show it's age, it's still plenty great! Cabin was clean and the housekeeping staff was always friendly and professional! The dining rooms were all amazing, Modernero was an experience. Cagney's was amazing, even the atrium cafe's staff made a simple cafe and bar somewhere you want to go to and chat with the staff, who over the week, become more friends than cruise staff. There are always activities going on, even when there isn't the TV programming isn't bad (resolution was pretty terrible though) The games are fun and you get a feeling that the staff are having just as much fun as you are! The service was top notch, food was always tasty the correct temperature and flavorful. Getting off the ship for excursions was easy and not complicated at all (wish I had more time at Universal though! 4 hours isn't enough!) All together the wife and I cannot wait to go on our next cruise (probably with Norwegian) and hopefully sooner rather than later.

Amazing ship for an amazing experience.

Cabin was amazing for the 2 of us and we really felt comfortable in the bed. Wife really liked the shower because it got HOT!
