The food and staff were very good. No lounges to relax and read a book. Watched 2 shows and both were very good. This ship is basically trying to extract money from you by every means possible, eg by charging for some meals which were al a carte and payable, Small bottle of beer was 6.95 US $ which is expensive. The ship has been built to cater for American families sailing in warm weather I don't suggest anybody using the ship unless the cruise is where the weather is warm. Unless you want to join badly behaved youngsters running riot all day, avoid this ship. Finally on boarding and leaving the ship they expect you to carry all your own luggage up and down stairs. How can a 80 year old woman with a walking stick, mange this? Staff just watch people struggle and offer no help. Leaving the ship is dangerous having to carry all your own luggage down 4 flights (at least) of stairs. You only need I person to slip, and many people will be injured on the stairs. Leaving the ship it is an accident waiting to happen....may sure it is not you who has any accident.

Carry your own lugggage.....the staff will stand and watch
