I chose this cruise because of the ease of sailing out of NYC and not having to fly to get to the cruise, plus the dates worked well.
The ship was large enough to house 5,000 people, but beyond that, we were like sardines or cockroaches running around trying to find space to eat, sit and explore the ship. The ship itself was not that big, believe it or not, as the area in which to explore was very limited, limited being the operative word. The majority of the ships space was devoted to the rooms in which to house the patrons.
Onto the food.... It was good and tasty but not of the same caliber as Holland America. There was no grilled fish in the Garden Cafe (the all inclusive food area), there was no sautéed shrimp nor any of the more expensive variety of foods. What was very good and tasty was the Indian food and hamburgers.
It was small, we made do and having the balcony made it tolerable.
