We enjoyed our cruise and plan another trip very soon. The entertainment was off the chart s well as the meal. Nothing compares to the view from the upper deck.

The seating is very open, standard rectangular tables. You can walk around. There are 4 levels inside and outside space for viewing. Dinner is inside of course. There are lots of families.
