Great ship, entertainment was okay but not amazing . Loved the poolside movies and the ice show was beautiful. I would have liked to have a cruise compass before booking, we booked the 6pm dining room sitting but with the 6pm movies, 7pm or 9 pm shows you miss something. Disappointed with the sapphire restaurant options(lots of seafood, but if you don't eat seafood the options are limited), dinner length was 1 1/2 hours, they were better In the wind jammer. I was Disappointed that there was no key lime pie on the ship but there were heaps of dessert options in the windjammer... Curtis, crepes, many different cakes including sugar free options and fresh fruit galore. The only specially restaurant we went to was johnny rockets, not slot of people in the which was good but having never been there it was okay but you could make a burger in the windjammer all day long

Cabin Review

Ocean View Balcony
Cabin 3D 6294
Cabin was lovely, we had 3 people in this room with an upper bunk. Anyone other than a kid would have been unhappy, not slot of room to climb up. Plus the bed had to bed pulled down every night.
