I read many negative comments about this cruise prior to the sailing and I wasn't sure if I had made the right choice, but I can tell you i had a great time. Yes, some areas are more crowdy and some restaurant services are slower than the others but there are over 4000 people on the boat! The staffs are friendly and helpful and food was definitely better than other cruise lines. I highly recommend the Moderno, the Brazilian restaurant, the food was so delicious, especially the salad bar, the service was excellent and if you are seated by the window you can watch the sunset while dining. The steakhouse is located right next to Moderno but way more popular and the service was slower than the Moderno. If I go back to the steakhouse again I would make the reservation more toward the beginning of the week than the later of the week. The Mahattan dining room service was way more better than the Savor, where the wait time for the food was just too long. Teppanaki was very entertaining and the food was good but it can be little too noisy if you are going for a quiet dinner. I wouldn't go back to the Le Bistro because the food was just average and the service was almost none existent that I almost walked out. That's not what I expected of a French restaurant. Just to get a glass of wine took forever! I bought the unlimited spa package to relax but it wasn't quiet and relaxing as I expected. The noise from the jacuzzis and the people were just irritating. The hot stone seats are limited to thirty minutes and sometimes you have to wait just to find an empty one. I paid $200 extra! It's better to get one nice massage and save money. One more thing, I've been on four cruises prior to this one, and by far this embarkation and disembarkation process was the most quickiest one ever. My family got the call to leave the ship at 8:20 and we were in taxi by 8:50!

I loved it!
