This ship is advertised as a large cruise ship with something to do at all times full of entertainment. This is true, but misleading. The ship is huge and has enough cabins for 4,000 people, but the restaurants, ESPECIALLY the pool, etc are not nearly big enough for that many people. This ship is so over crowded it is ridiculous.

If you don't make dinner reservations, forget about eating dinner that night. And the buffet? Forget about it. Every time I went there I could not find a seat. There are probably 200 pool chairs on a ship for 4000 people. And the actual POOL isn't even a pool. Instead of a real pool, the ship has 2 or 3 kiddie sized pools that can fit about 20 people each shoulder to shoulder.

Everything was SO expensive and after a short time I realized that the purpose of this ship was nothing but to suck in as much money as possible. BUT, I would go back just for Spice H20, a bar my day dance club by night. The drinks were amazing and the experience was spectacular. The DJ was great also. By far my favorite part of the trip.

Mediocre food. Small menus and every restaurant had about the same food.

TINY and CRAMPED cabins
