Longer is better. Free style is the way to go. Meeting new people is the greati.

Sail Date: Nov 2019
Cabin: Inside

This was our first cruise longer than 7 days.It was a good decision and we will be booking longer cruises in the future.Getting on the ship ran smoothly and our room was ready . The inside cabins seem to have shrunk quite a bit.The layout of the ship was similar to other so finding our way around was easy. The shows were good but the dance routines were just a little too busy. The cruise director and staff were great and allover the place. All the staff on the boat were great. Our room steward was excellant, she was never in the way but available when we need her. The TV free selections were very poor. We book excursions off the ship mostly because of cost. This was a nice selection of islands and did not include a cruise ship island which we don't care for..The disembarkation was a little confusion because we could not tell which color was being called. The meeting space for the friend of bill meeting would have worked better for me at 5:00. One of the conference room would have been a better choice

Cabin Review

Inside

Too small. Not enough room to put a seat.
