We chose this ship for the experience of the larger ship. It was indeed an "experience". PROS - beautiful, modern ship with great entertainment and activities. Embarkation and Debarkation went smoothly. Our dining room servers and cabin stewards were absolutely wonderful. CONS - too many people, things seemed a bit unorganized. They had no record of our onboard credit, lost one of our entertainment reservations and were told to wait in the back of the "wait list line" to see the show. (Instead I went back to my cabin to take a photo of the reservation from the TV to "prove" we had one, then no apology from the MC for the mixup, he reluctantly seated us - behind a column where we could not see - no way to treat Diamond Plus guests, why would we lie about a reservation? This treatment was very demeaning.) Consecutive cruiser luncheon was lacking, we waited over 25 minutes without service while all tables around us were served, we had to track down an officer for service, then our waiter seemed put out. Dining room never opened on time, not once during our 2 weeks on board, for the late dinner seating, we waited up to 30 minutes beyond our scheduled dinner time for the doors to open. I guess the seating time is a "suggestion". Dinner dress code is not recognized in the dining room, women were wearing cut-off daisy-duke short-shorts, men were in bathing suites, ball caps and flip flops. Guest Code of Conduct is not monitored.. We encountered an unusually large number of rude guests on this sailing. Kids everywhere, running in the halls, constantly slamming doors, playing in the dining rooms, playing in the elevators (pushing the "close" button before guests could enter.) I know they are on vacation but PARENTS PLEASE teach your children how to behave in public. And when is it ever appropriate to allow kids under 18 in the cocktail lounges and bars? They have entire areas of the ship dedicated to children. It's frustrating to go to a cocktail lounge to get away from the under-age mayhem only to find the chairs/tables occupied by children while we have no place to sit.

Some good, some not so good.

Cabin Review

Cabin 11700
Less storage space than the next lower class ship, but beautiful cabin. Didn't care for the way the doors are designed side by side. We had a large family (6 adults & 4 kids) in the 3 cabins around us (1 next door and 2 across the hall.) We could hear every time they opened their doors. They were constantly, constantly slamming the doors and congregating in the middle of the 4 doors, which was very disturbing early in the morning or late at night.
