I do not have another cruise to compare this one to, but IT IS SO AWESOME!! I have read some bad reviews for this ship, and I have to say that they must not have been on the same ship I was on. Everything is so nice, from the staff, especially Risa the Cruise Director, and her assistant Rebecca, to the service, the food, the entertainment, ALL EXCELLENT!!

The R rated comedians were SO FUNNY, the shows were so good, the Tahiti Lounge and its Karaoke is so hilarious, and LOTS of fun!! We are absolutely going again next year! As an example, we could not have gone to Florida for 5 nights, eaten like we did, (the prime rib is to die for), seen all the shows, plus the have 2 newly released movies, all different, playing for you in the cabin, along with abc, cbs, and nbc, for what we paid for the cruise. And the prices!! Cartons of cigarettes, so much cheaper, but customs will only allow 1 carton per person back in the states, liquor was half price, the had gold and silver by the inch, vendors are at each port, NEVER GIVE FULL PRICE. They always barter.

They had all kinds of things on board to buy, a 24 hr pizzeria, 24 hr room service, at no charge, midnight buffets, breakfast and lunch buffets, and I thought the dining room you had to be really dressed up, thy have only 1 formal night, and you do dress up then, but after that there were just golf or polo shirts for guys, with khacki pants, and maybe a top and pants for women. Don't get me wrong, you can dress up the whole time if you want to, but I did not see them turn anyone away from the dining rooms. This was the best time I have ever had, and I can't wait for my 2004 trip on the Holiday!!
