Several times a year, we plan dive cruises - that is, we cruise, and wherever we go, we scuba dive! You can read more about that on my blog at DeepWaterHappy.com - just search for "cruise" and you will find several articles about turning a cruise ship into a mobile dive site!

We knew the ship was one of the largest we had been on recently, but were pleasantly surprised that although large, there were small private areas scattered all over the ship. In the Solarium, there were lounging beds for two. On each deck, there were small areas tucked away here and there for a luxury yacht-like feel.

I loved that the Windjammer buffet seating is spread out far more than other ships, and several repeating stations so you don't have to walk all over to see the selections. The Windjammer also wraps around the stern, so there are great views in all directions, and nearly all the seats are "waterfront seating."

Cabin Review

Spacious Ocean View Balcony

Fantastic cabin with direct view of the bridge and additional space on the balcony.
