A few families booked the trip together. We spent 7 nights onboard and we had good time. Pros: New ship, cabin has more space than other cruise ships. Excellent onboard WiFi message system, we didn't need Walkie Talkie. Great evening shows. Great service, all attendants are excellent. Great itinerary Cons: Upsell too much, complimentary amenities are less than necessary Buffet menu is same all three meals a day, seven days a week. Restaurant food grade is lower than other cruise lines (not much good sea food) IWAYAN MARIADA at restaurant Ipanema is the best dining attendants that I had in 5 cruise trips. We had three families (11 persons) sharing a big dinning table during this trip. Mariada's service made everyone comfortable. His excellent work made our dining time a good memory even the food was so so.

Great itinerary, service, and shows
