We choose this cruise because friends of ours had never sailed before and wanted to do a shorter cruise to see how they would feel. They were concerned about motion sickness but this ship is big and the motion felt was very minimal. Pros -The ship is beautiful over all. She sails so smoothly even in the swells we hit in the Bahamas. -Our cabin A624 was well laid out. It wasn't the biggest balcony cabin we've had but it was a good size. -The Dining Room handled my dietary needs better than any cruise I've ever been on! It was a real treat to have a gluten free desert that wasn't just fruit and cheeses. -The live bands we're all very good. The stage show was interesting but the gamer theme was out of place on a cruise. I liked the comedian. -I never felt like 3000+ people were on the ship. There was a lot of personal space for relaxing. -The dance party by the pool looked like so much fun! Cons -The port at Ft Lauderdale was confusing with all of the construction. -The price was a bit steep per night but we were ok with it for the shorter itenerary. -The dining the first night was not at our usual table and seating everyone as they arrived at the dining room all at one time was chaos. There was a long line of folks waiting and the hostess was getting frazzled. She did the best she could but it was a lot on her. Once we were seated service took a looong time but the server did the best she could. -The wifi for Medallion was way inadequate for the number of people trying to access the app. We had tested it on a cruise last year with a handful of others on another ship and were so excited to see it in full production use. Still a lot to work out. -No sugarfree syrups in the coffee shops and no Stevia to use anywhere. -The bed in our cabin was coming apart -The choice of movies left something to be desired.
