The ship itself is really nice. Well laid out, easy to navigate, beautiful foyer area. Ship very clean. Rooms were nice – had a balcony cabin and it was spacious, with cute towel animals and nightly bed turndowns. Nice bar areas. Gym reasonable but not that big, and reasonably priced beauty parlour. Ship had two pools and 4 spas and a water slide. Has a video arcade for the kids. It does not have a lot of the ‘bells and whistles’ that some of the newer ships seem to have. * Deb1971
