I chose this cruise, because my daughter asked if we could do a family cruise with two separate families. The ship was half booked due to COVID. If this ship was 100 percent booked, it would have been miserable. My wife and I had prepaid for gratuites, drinks and community meals on deck 16, Taste, the Public, and one other spot. The other 'off plan' restaraunts on the ship basically served the same food except it was full serve.
My wife and I, along with my son, decided to get the gilato at the over priced bakery shop. The gilato was freezer burnt, the specialty bunt cakes, or cupcakes were dry and nasty - the frosting was hard as a rock. It was a huge waste of money. The deserts on deck 16 were much better.
The balcony state room, on deck 9, was very comfortable.
