Brand new ship - awesome, however, ship is designed for young families with children. Not designed for seniors - way too many children on the cruise out of control. Been on other cruise lines where you rarely see the children on board. No pool in the senior only pool area. Only one pool for adults - second pool is in the water slide area for the kids. Due to the amount of space on the lido deck for the rope course and the water slides - very limited area for sun around the main pool. Under-staffed in the evening in the dining rooms due to the number of available facilities.... 7 specialty restaurants, a bar and grill, 3 comp main dining rooms. Love the set up the room/stateroom ....floor design for the bathroom was the nicest we have ever encountered on any cruise ship we have been on.

Average at best in main dining rooms - cold and under-staffed and slow. Impressed with the O'Sheehan Bar and Grill was excellent - staff was great and meals were hot and enjoyable. Buffet better than most cruise lines - selection and hot.

Excellent cabin - room steward was great and very helpful. Floor plan was great - especially the bathroom.

Awesome things to do - lots of activities.

We enjoyed the beach areas - especially Megan's Bay in St. Thomas.
