We originally booked this cruise back in 2019, but it got cancelled because of the pandemic. We booked again but our cruise got cancelled 3 more times. Finally, we were able to take this cruise from Sydney, Australia. The first thing I noticed when boarding is the ship is VERY pink. But that didn't bother me, I thought it added to the experience. You enter the ship via the massive, breathtaking atrium which starts on deck 3 and reaches up all the way to deck 10. There are even four diamond-shaped glass elevators which run from deck 2 to deck 11, and provide a really stunning view of the atrium.

We had anytime dining, so we ate at the Black Pearl Restaurant some nights. It was very big, and very beautiful. It had spiralling chandeliers of black pearls, and the whole decor there really suited the ocean. On deck 5 is a walkway that spans from the atrium to the El Morocco Lounge at the very aft of the ship. The Royal Flush Casino was also located on this pathway. Despite carrying over 3000 passengers, the ship never felt crowded.

The food was amazing in most places, but could have been a little better in the buffet. The drinks were amazing, and the ships outdoor spaces felt very cozy. The main pool was surrounded by 2 decks.
