The cruise was amazing. We went on a cruise because my mother has a fatal illness and wanted me to enjoy what could possibly be our last vacation. We had the junior suite which was really nice and had a great view of the ocean. My friend, however, had a stateroom on deck 3 and despite the lack of space which the junior suites had, it was very nice as well. The view from there is great, too.
The activities were great, especially the adventure ocean activities for the kids. They have directors that make the cruise as fun as possible for the kids. They have theme parties as well, and while I only went to the country dance with my father, that alone was wicked cool. The events in the Broadway theatre were just as good. I, myself, only went to the magic and grand illusions show and the rock and roll Broadway show, but they were wicked cool as well. The magicians, Larry and Rafael (LaRaf), were the coolest.
The food was amazing, whether you went to the solarium for fries and pizza, the windjammer for an all-you-can-eat buffet, or the edelweiss dining hall for fancy dining and things like escargot. In the edelweiss dining hall, the waiters and waitresses were amazing. They would go completely out of their way to please you. My family made personal friends with our waiters Camen (head waiter), Rock (waiter), and Linette (assistant waitress).
I was impressed with the way the cabin boys made a new design with the bedding every evening. My family made friends with our cabin boy, Dwight, as well.
I was overall pleased with this cruise and I sincerely hope that you have as much of a good time as us.
