I can’t stress enough how wonderful this ship was. So much to do, very clean and the staff all seemed to enjoy their jobs. It has 20 restaurants and lots of bars. The entertainment was exceptional from the Aqua Theatre, the theatre, lounges right down to the comedians. All of staff we encountered were very friendly and well trained. All of our questions were answered quickly and professionally. Our room steward, Viola was a joy and we never had to ask for a thing. She brought us ice and fresh wine glasses twice a day. Our only complaint was the up-charges of the specialty restaurants and the price of drinks. We were worried about going on a ship that held so many passengers, but to be honest, it seemed easier than other ships we have been on. Embarkation was a piece of cake and getting off and on was a breeze. Disembarkation was easy from the ship, but the port of Miami was a nightmare.

Beautiful vessel

The cabins are tight, but not unlike most ships
