The Cruise and offered 'freebies' were an incredible bargain. Ship is beautiful, still like brand new, and constantly kept clean. Balcony room was well laid out, more than adequate - and we even had a bathtub instead of a 2' x 2' shower! Our Cabin Steward and Dining Room Staff were great. The choreography, costumes and performers were incredible for the shows. The 'not so great' things were the dining room menu and food preparation, as well as the almost non-existent bar staff and waiters (who all need a lot of training for customer courtesy and timely service) - and these are some of the more important features desired by most cruisers. We chose not to go on any excursions (been to those ports many times), but our friends onboard all raved about the experience. Comments were generally "extremely well run" for getting started and returning to the ship; and "great and very knowledgeable tour guides."

SOME THINGS GREAT - OTHERS NOT SO MUCH
