Full Review:

Standard seems to have dropped.

Entertainment is very good. Although way way below that offered on the Jewel of the Seas

Cabins are very small and cramped. If you want to sit down in the cabins you now sit on a made up bed instead of a settee.
You need to be slim to fit into the shower/toilet area.
Deck two you will need ear defenders to sleep in the cabin, we had ear plugs plus there is vibration through the cabin floor. Believe me these cabins are very noisey. If this cabin was a work place it wouldn't pass the H & S noise regulations.

Cruise Positives:

Cruise Negatives:
The boat needs to be strapped as it is pass it sell by date. And dont tell the reception staff about any problems either as that with their non-smiling faces and attitude nothing will be done. Plus 250 toilets wouldn't working for the whole week even af
