We found the common areas very crowded on days at sea.

Had to wait in line for everything. Could not get in to Margaritaville Restaurant as they had already passed out 50 pagers and to fulfill that would be past the time the restaurant would close.

Room service had a service charge of $7.95 for everything you ordered except a continental breakfast.

My husband wanted a glass of wine in our room one night. It was house wine at $7.95 plus $1.43 (18%) gratuity and the $7.95 service charge. That equals $17.33. We skipped it.

Food was actually excellent. The restaurants that were a la carte were reasonable and delicious. The only other one besides the two a la carte that we paid for was the Japanese Hibachi. It was very good.

Smaller than any other balcony room we've ever been in. Kept up very well by our room steward. Colors beige and brown, dreary, actually. Hate to see them after a little wear and tear. This was only the second actual cruise of this ship.

You needed to make reservations which I did on line ahead of time but when I got on board they had no record of it. Even though on line it showed I had 5 things in my basket. They did have my reservation for one of the restaurants only. I had reserved three.

My family took part in the activities. We did not. Their impression was they were only OK.

This ship is not for seniors.
