Sail Date: Dec 2019
Cabin: Balcony (partially obstructed views)

I could not resist the rates on this 4 day cruise to achieve Elite status. Settled into a cabin on PR deck aft. Loved the location close to exit doors directly onto Promaneade deck. First time on this ship since 2013, and the refit. Really missed the full PR deck. It was almost as though I had never cruised this ship before, Explorers Lounge - gone. All kids' clubs are now aft, along with Fitness Center and Sanctuary, which was virtually a ghost town.

NO international cafe added. But in fairness, there is NO room on this class of ship, so just know you will be going a bit in reverse after enjoying on larger ships.

I heard others' complaining about the buffet, and lack of choices and entrees. I found nothing to complain about. There were more than enough choices in my opinion. Here again, once you have eaten in Royal or Regal, etc., the variety and size may not excite you.
