Sail Date: Dec 2019
Cabin: Mid-ship Balcony Stateroom

I traveled with my wife and adult children. I watched a lot of reviews but somehow missed that the encore shows and dining reservations fill up the first few hours. The 1st full day of the cruise almost every show was full. I did make one reservation for the teppanyaki restaurant before we left home, it was the best place we ate. The above information is what you need to know from this review.

I was able to make reservations for late at night at Cagney's (disappointed) and Ocean Blue very nice place to eat formal ($40 for lobster over priced). We also was able to get in The Choir of Men a must see, and Kinky Boots very well done just not my cup of tea.

I enjoyed the laser tag and a couple of virtual rides, but 250 pound weight limit on go-carts.

Cabin Review

Mid-ship Balcony Stateroom

Don't get this cabin right above The Cavern Lounge loud music until mid-night.

Arrived at 5:30 seemed like a wasted stop nothing was open.
