We had been on this ship before. Although the ship carries 6000 plus passengers, It is not really a problem except for the elevators on the first day, and the pools on sea days. Our check in was done online previously, so we just walked onto the ship.
We had the owners's suite which was spacious and had a whirlpool tub. But, there was a few surprises. I like the Coastal Kitchen for dinner, and the venue now has four alternating entrees , in addition to four fixed. Previously, Coastal Kitchen had only fixed selections. Ww ate in Coastal Kitchen for all the nights except one night when we ate in Chops.Other diners agreed with us that it had the best dining on the ship.
Mamma Mia, the Aqua Show , the Ice Show, and the production show were of professional quality. In addition, some nights were spent in the romantic setting of Central Park, listening to music, or the jazz club.
Another surprise was the restoration of recent movies on the TV. Of course there are still pay per view options, but I was satisfied with the complimentary selections.
The pools could be quite crowded. Passengers are still being allowed to drink in the pool. (eliminated by other cruise lines) which adds to the crowding. The Solarium pool should be expanded for this problem.
Costa Maya, one of our stops, is a town built by the cruise industry, but it contains two interactive museums, and the wonderful aviary.. I highly recommend a visit there.
Owner suite is much more spacious than on Harmony, great TV, and interactive selections
