This was our first cruise, and couldn't believe what a great ship this was. Started at embarkation from FLL, an absolute breeze and were on ship in about 20 mins. Headed straight for food, and then to the red frog pub for drinks. Balcony cabin aft on deck 7 was great (apart from noise of neighbours slamming door, oh and smoking weed on his balcony) Food was always great - big fan of guys burgers where we ate a few times. Food in MDR was always great, though sometimes not overly warm which was more due to the room temperature more than anything else. We also ate in the steakhouse, which was amazing food and the best steak I've ever had. Also booked the italian restaurant for our last night which again was lovely food, and really big portions. We didn't purchase the drinks package, but did make use of happy hour when we could catch it. Spent our sea days up on Serenity deck which was nice - but be warned it can be really hot up there as not a lot of shade about. I booked a pedicure in the spa, but it wasnt a great experience - mainly due to staff being quite rude and not interested in interacting with customers at all! All in all I don't think there is anything else i could fault about our cruise, staff and room steward were all lovely. I would definitely book to go on this ship again

First cruise. Loved every minute
