I gave this review a very good. Here are the positives: Must see entertainment, Burn the Floor, Cirque Dreams of Steam, and Million Dollar Quartet. Casino review: Blackjack very bad to play house had extreme advantage because the Casino uses a shufflemaster. For people who dont understand this the cards played are put right back into the hopper so theres no rhyme or reason as to what card would be coming out next. Poker Tournaments were two days supposed to be 3 days but one was cancelled when private island tour was skipped because of weather at sea. Overall tournaments were satisfactory I wasnt very pleased that after playing an hour or so and there were only 8 of us left that someone could buy in and play the final table with us with a buy in of 100 for 2000 chips and an addon for 4000 chips. It gave a distinct advantage to the new player. Deal or No Deal game was very entertaining. The Spa seemed crowded in hot tub area and was uncomfortable when people jumped in IE 4 guys in one tub just didint sit right with me. Should maybe be some times scheduled for the Hot tub for individuals. Salt room was nice and showers there were very good . Staff and crew members were very cordial and friendly. Maid service impeccable. Casino hosts were very professional. Food everywhere exceptional. Cons: They lost our luggage on 1st night and we missed out on formal dinner with suits and nice dresses because of it. Also when we arrived at Port Canaveral for stopover it was only 4 hours to visit Sea World and after hr drive made it 3 hrs or less. Private Island trip cancelled missed out on snorkeling . Also rooms were lit by a key card and you need this card to use the bathroom too this would have been a nice thing to know upon entering the stateroom. Enjoy Your Cruise!!!

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom
Cabin BD 11466
Cabin had a king size bed and a foldout couch bed along with 2 chairs and a stand outside on patio . It was impeccable with cleanliness maid service was exceptional. We required an extension cord for my wifes CPAP machine and they had it for us very quickly. Television stations were average great if you liked soccer but no other sports were on there. Internet was very poor and expensive.

    The ship docked around 1pm and with Sea World closing at 6pm we only saw very little of the attractions but was as well as good be.
