Absolutely LOVED this ship!! it was sold out for thanksgiving week - we had 2 connecting balconies but the rooms were on the 6th deck, right above the smoking area on deck 5 =( Booooo... we would often get a waft of smoke up to our room, so we really didn't use the balconies too much. it was weird cause we weren't looking straight down into the water like previous balcony rooms but all good. we did my time dining and it was amazing. the service was impeccable, food was obviously made by skilled chefs who love their job. we know the hustle involved and even with those long days, the staff went out of their way for us - at every turn. even giving us indian food at dinner without being asked, and telling us the night they had indian food in WJ - - and that was some legit indian food for real. never had a bad meal. Jamies italian was equally impressive and Wonderland was incredible. What a great experience. our room steward was Duvall who was awesome to deal with. service-minded and just a fun guy, caring, genuine. we totally LOVED the entertainment - all the shows were amazing. these cast members are so talented and work so hard - i just wish that the crowd gave them more noise for their efforts. WE WILL ROCK YOU was better than i expected, THE GIFT had some great covers of music tunes, and SPECTRA's cabaret was very very weird but the cast is amazing. Two70 room is simply incredible. the best use of space on the ship! Went there and chilled out a few times between shows, nice cafe attached, the sound in that room is sick!! the robotic-arm TV's were so cool, with all of the back screens in use.. sound quality was better than a movie theater. I would definitely recommend using this space. it took us 25minutes to get on the ship once we walked into the port - AMAZING!! it took us 20 minutes to get off the boat at the end!! So hassle-free !! Perfect Day was incredible. we had a cabana and access to waterpark and that was such a fun day. they need to spend more time in port at Perfect Day for sure...8-9hrs was not enough! Ifly was so incredible as well. but it's only one minute in the chamber =( .. what an exhilarating ride!

Best Vacation Cruise to date!

Cabin Review

Ocean View Balcony
Cabin 4D
didn't much like our spot - we looked out at Lifeboat 13 - this should have said OBSTRUCTED BALC because it was. it was also above the smoking shed on Deck 5 and we could smell the smoke many times and the people were too loud at times. i wish we were right above the ocean but at least we had balconies.
