This was nearly our 20th cruise and definitely one of the most fun cruises. The CD and her activity staff were pretty amazing. They just made the cruise an absolute blast. The definite highlights were Quest and Love and Marriage. And the shows were definitely better than average. The food was hit or miss. Some of it was good and some wasn't very good. The Italian specialty restaurant was outstanding and definitely worth it. The ship itself looked very good especially for it's age. Service was above average. The trivia on board was a lot of fun also. The cruise was basically sold out and it really didn't feel that crowded. I really don't remember really waiting on any lines. We never had to wait for a drink at any bar. The bigger ships definitely have felt a lot more crowded when they were at or near capacity. I really wouldn't hesitate booking a cruise on this ship with this cruise director and her staff.
