Second time on ship. Enjoy back of ship overlooking boardwalk & diving show (rm 11725). Extra spiffs (soft drink pkg and 1 meal at Johnny Rockets) come with the Boardwalk rooms. Quiet location …. dead end hallway with only three rooms past this room. The Market Place (Lido Deck on most ships) offered a good variety of food however limited sitting area. Disappointed it closed before 9pm. Dining room on 3rd floor (The Grill?) was our FAVORITE place to eat for lunch. a la carte or buffet …. EXCELLENT food. Assigned dining was on the fifth floor. We had six around our table ….. cramped. The table was small and walk spaces …. tight. Although dress code was long pants, other than formal nights, many men wore dress shorts, including myself. Now the bad ….. felt the ship was heading toward being a Carnival Ship. Loads of small kids. Screams and noise reverberated through he Boardwalk and hallways. Found kids wandering noisily through Casino and Adult areas of the ship. Dining room and shows compared our group with prior cruisers wanting more applauds and screams. Insulted when asked to give standing ovation for chefs and waiters, because we didn't want to be outdone by previous cruise. Ship is to be refurbished adding water slides and other young adult entertainment. Enjoyed the MEGA ship first time, Second time around not as much. Expect there won't be a third time.
3rd room from back of ship. Overlooking Boardwalk and Diving Show. Good view of the ocean.
