The vessel: Very 80's in terms of decor but in a charming way. Very clean and comfortable, no complains there. Sleeping Accommodations: great, comfortable very clean! Wonderful housekeeping attendants. Remembered us by name and were very polite ( that's about it for the potness of the crew, well with the exception of the entertaminet crew). Dining: we were assigned to dine at the Pride Dining room, unfortunately both food and service were far from perfect. It seemed as the restaurant stuff did not enjoy their job and took out the frustrations on the diners. No smiles, just bad attitudes. We have been witted in the same section for both nights (third night we opted not to dine there any longer and chose the pizza instead) the main waiter was ok, the coctail waitress was either really poorly trained or just didn't care i have not heard to please and thank you, the entire time, more of "you want a drink?". I did not expect a 5 star dining experience but just a tad more effort would have been appreciated. There was no one there to a dress it with. Entertaiment: it was definitely fun! The entertaiment crew worked hard and did their job well, we have seen most of the shows, went clubbing, participated in contests, relaxed by the pool, jogged on the olimpic track, played pingpong, beanbag toss and cheered on Giants during the super bowl on a giant projector screen in the dynasty lounge. The best deal on the alcohol are hands down bear buckets, there are waiters constantly serving signature cocktails (different every day) with about $8.00 per drink price tags. Excursions: we chose the "sail and snorkel" trip and had an amazing time! I highly recommend it if you are feeling adventurous. We relaxed on our way there, took some beautiful sights of the coral reef, and danced sipping on rum drinks our way back to the port. Our goal was to relax and have a great time, which we did. If only the service would put in more effort it would have been perfect vacation!

Fun deliver, service not so much
