This was my birthday cruise. Living in NYC meant we did not need to fly. Experienced cruiser with at least 15 cruises on different lines THE GOOD Food quality: in included and specialty restaurants. Steakhouse was great. Clean ship, I like new ships. Awesome shows, especially Spellbound Nightly movies outside with popcorn. Finally got to see Blackpanther. THE BAD Elevators: I think it’s a software issue. Could be very frustrating at dinner time. Liquid Loung (main theater): way too small, get there early. Some seats are blocked by columns on the upper level. Buffet : I have never seen such a poor variety. Pizza and Deli are very understaffed. Cheers drinking package: starts on day 2 (8 day cruise) when you leave out of NYC. Although it’s more generous then some other cruise lines the cost is for 7 days but bars are closed on disembarkation. Lack of seating poolside.

Good but room for improvement
