I wonder why the last review was done in December 2006. Seems no-one is cruising this ship for last 2 years? Overall the 10 night cruise is DISAPPOINTING. We took the B6 Balcony Room with Obstructed View. The room is small (9' x 21.5') compared to the balcony room of the RCL, and not "luxurious" as advertised, e.g. with white linens, like hospital beds. We dined mostly in the Britania Restaurant. The food is just OK, very common dishes and not much garnish/decorations. The fish was usually overcooked. The sitting area around King's Court is just like sitting on the passage ways, very uncomfortable. Not all the four sections in King's Court are opened for lunch, afternoon tea, and after 9 pm, they take turns to open. Very limited, especially the days when there are excursions on shore. While they have knitting class and afternoon catholic mass every day. For 10 nights, the shows are mostly performed by one artist/performer. Only one production by the singer and dancers of the ship call the "Apassionata" and from the reviews before, this production was performed for years. Overall the deck, public rooms are small and packed for a 150,000 tons ship. The 2 level Grand Lobby (atrium) are small and packed for a 150,000 tons liner. As this is the 4th cruise to the Caribbean, we went onshore on our own. The purpose of this cruise to try the "famous" ship. In conclusion, It is over-valued for the price we paid.
