Itinerary fit our schedule. Balcony, mid ship was fine, specialty dining very nice. Menu was very repetitive in complimentary dining rooms. Over cooked beef, chicken, drink pkg was just ok. Cheap liquor maybe. Public spaces can be very crowded. Spice H2o adult space had smoking section that we had to breath if we wanted to lounge there. Never used this space due to second hand smoke. Favorite place was observation deck. On and off ship easy. Moderate seas last sea day. Watched movies in our room . overall ship crew very nice and service was very very good. Nothing to shop for on ship as they only have jewellery shops and one sundries store. The food was much better on Royal Caribbean when we visited Alaska. I will not cruise again. Land packages offer much more flexibility.. Enjoyed the Aqua racer and the Galaxy pavillion. Enjoyed meeting lots of pleasant people this week!

Service good, complimentary dining not good
