disappointing. They advertised that the ship interior was smoke free, except casino. HOWEVER, they failed to mention that the casino is central to the interior, adjacent to several main areas: all three dining areas, the atrium, customer services and bookings. It is designed completely open, so that you must go thru it to get to anything on that floor, and so that the cigarette smoke invades every public area on decks 5, 6, and7. I was sick and congested starting 3 days into it. I do not appreciate the damage to my health. I despise smoking, and they could have either closed in the area or forbidden smoking. I am going back to Princess. At least the casino area can be avoided.

good food

tiny cabin. Fine if you are married. Due to lack of privacy in toilet I would not take it shared with roommate.

activities were great for children. Bad for dancers- no regular music and only 2 dance floors, and then only in early evening except for disco. no zumba or other exercise classes.

did not like shows- no song and dance except one night. there are only 3 venues, which repeat. so in 7 day cruise you only get 3 shows.

no more cruises on this ship. smoking kills it, However the employees were great and service the best.
