My wife and I are 68. Enough said. We didn't participate in the men's "abs" contest and my wife didn't participate in the women's "guns" contest but they looked like fun. The ship is beautiful, very well designed to accommodate the huge number of passengers and never feeling overcrowded. We ate in specialty restaurants 5 of the 7 nights. Ocean Blu, Le Bistro and Cagneys are fantastic. Q Smokehouse was pretty good. the Local offered a prime rib dinner on the first night (no extra cost) that was delicious. We ate breakfast and lunch in the garden cafe, the buffet. The food was very good and varied, and the layout of the buffet on this ship is such that there are many separate stations for food, maybe >20, so there's no waiting in line while an indecisive diner wonders whether (s)he wants 3 slices of bacon or 4! We attended the specialty entertainment - Jersey Boys, Havana, Beatlemania and they were all excellent. 3 other bands and 2 piano bar singers were also excellent. Comedians, not so much. We avoided the commotion of the main pool but found very comfortable couches on the promenade deck (8) to sit, relax, read, nap! and enjoy the view peacefully. The cabin was very well designed, pretty spacious, and had lots of closet and drawer space. Overall, an excellent experience.

Beautiful ship, very good food and entertainment

Cabin Review

Mid-ship Oceanview with Large Picture Window
Cabin OB 5756
The cabin was spacious and very well designed. Lots of closet space and drawer space, so much that we left some drawers empty. The bedding is very comfortable.
