Why? Was curious and it fit our schedule, we have been on several carnival, princess, and royal. Beyond expectations in most areas.This ship is very similar to carnival in so many ways, especially the layout obviously because it was a carnival ship.
Tip one: Arrive early around 10:30, it seems check in would be slow if there was a line. Valet and baggage check in was efficient, quick, and simple. No porter, no problem. You bring your luggage 50 feet to scanner and another short distance to drop off that seemed easier than the bigger ships and ports.
Tip two: research all the additional options and packages such as drink packages and specialty dining, concierge vip etc, they will again and again be offered while you wait to board,
room size good, comfy king bed tv lousy. cute curtained fake window
toilet stopped working last night, made due with other ship heads, reported in morning and they were there quickly, while we disembarked
