The ship's is in great shape and has many top deck activities. I enjoyed the aft top deck where they had a bar, hot tubs and showed movies on a giant screen at night. The food was average, long wait for average steak at cagneys. The buffet was typical, could always find a seat. The public decks 678 were always crowded, they held many shows in the atrium as it seems they could have used another lounge or two. it was always noisy and crowded. The casino was open to the other spaces so the smoke permeates the adjacent spaces. Comedy club was standing room only book once you're on board! They did have a second arcade near the atrium which as very underused, with bowling, pool, darts plus some arcade games. Strangely the bowling alley was a nice quiet area. Crew and service was average I think they needed more bar servers long waits to get drinks with everyone having the free packages. great ship for warm weather cruises not so much for colder weather when you'd want some indoor space.

Crowded ship

Cabin Review

Mid-ship Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin MA
Cabin was nice small TV that didn't swing much for viewing at the bed or couch. Bathroom was huge with large shower. Balcony was average. This cabin was located between the forward and Aft elevators so lots of walking to get to one or the other.
