The Good: Alfredo's Pizzeria - best food on the ship (and complimentary!) Afternoon Tea - we went every day and it was always the highlight. Loved watching the NFL games on the big screen. Exceptional steward/stateroom service (shoutout to Rashid!) Crew was friendly and attentive, particularly in food service. The Medallions are pretty slick. Good variety of entertainment. Not too many kids. Roundtrip from of San Pedro (convenient to where we live; no airplanes required). The Less-Good: Coffee tasted like dirty water. Other than the aforementioned, food was generally mediocre. Stateroom carpet and upholstery are in desperate need of updating and the shower curtain was pretty gross. The Library has no comfortable seating, no view and practically no books! There is very little room for weight lifting in the Fitness Center and it was always crowded. Promenade Deck does not go all the way around - you can't promenade on the Promenade!

Mixed But Generally Positive Experience

Cabin Review

Balcony (obstructed view)
Cabin BW E101
It says Obstructed View because the rail is not glass (ie, see-through) but as a result of the location, the balcony is significantly roomier than the other stateroom of similar category. Would recommend!
Emerald Deck Inside Cabins, Balcony Cabins, Suite Cabins
