We loved our trip ! The ship was clean ,large and beautiful . The Chops Grille meal was outstanding and yes we did pay but its 5 courses with 5 star food and service .We were happy with most of the food in all restaurants plenty of fresh fruit and so many choices. Yes it did take too long to embark [we did get there early [ the ticket system doesnt seem to work but disembarkation was very fast [we took our own cases off early all went very smooth ] We did like some some of the entertainment especially the ice show and the 3 Australian singers the first night others not so great ,but there was always someone singing in one of the bars at night which was good .Our cabin was comfortable and cool also loved having a balcony and our steward kept our room spotless and made us nearly a zoo of towel animals over the 7 nights ! Our two port excursions were very interesting and well run ,At the promenade shops we did buy the bargain watches on the last night ,the shops are high end but do have bargain tables out the front a few nights .Overall service was good remember there was 3500 people but didnt feel crowded the only thing I didnt like was how loud the movie screen was around the main pool but there is an adults only pool as well but it was very hot in there [yes asia is very hot and humid ] We saw the dreamworks characters in fact had a few photos with them too ! We did go to for alittle flutter in the casino[ not too many smoking which was good ]All in all was good ,I would recommend you go with an open mind ,theres lots of egative written about this cruise but we found most of it to be great !

We enjoyed.
