We loved a lot of things about this cruise. The public areas are quite beautiful, especially Central Park and the Solarium. Despite the large number of passengers, many public areas seemed spacious and relaxing. The ship is huge, but we did not have any trouble traversing it end to end by going through Deck 8 (Central Park) or Deck 5 (Promenade). We found some truly outstanding staff, and our daily encounters with them really added sparkle to our week (go see Ryan at the liquor store, Richard at the Tiffany store, Chris the bartender at the Solarium pool deck ... and we really enjoyed the attention of our head waiter Jeldon in the American Icons dining room each night). We also really enjoyed a lot of the entertainment. The Come Fly with Me show was truly excellent, and the 1st parade and the Aqua theater show were fascinatingly weird. Ice show and headliner were good. And we never miss a Quest game ... this one did not disappoint. We were a group of 8 (my parents in their 70s, my husband and I in our 50s, and our adult children in their 20s), and most members of our group enjoyed the Flowrider, zip line, climbing walls, and miniature golf. Nice selection of activities to choose from. Minuses: the ship is due for updates later this year, and it shows in places. Many of the carpets were noticeably worn or dirty near elevators. We really hated our room set-up ... 4 people to a room in an inside cabin is always a lot, but with no upper bunks this was really cramped. There did not seem to be a lot of late-night food or beverage options.

Outstanding staff, excellent public areas. Disapponting cabin arrangement.

Cabin Review

Cabin 7435
We always travel with four people to an inside room (our now-20-something children), and while this is always a crowded arrangement, this is the first time we have encountered the new cabin set-up, with no upper bunks. Instead, the pull-out sofa takes up the entire floor space half the time. It was most inconvenient, and made it seem extra crowded. Hated it.
