I have to say the food is really surprisingly good - even inthe included venues. I have been hearing this about NCL for the last year or so, and it is true. This will be tough competition for Carnival and Royal Caribbean (especially).
yes, the rock climbing wall exists. It was beeen very cold outside so there is little action on the open decks.
One thing I need to mention is that there is a bad proiblem with loose water on the pool decks. The childrens area, which occupies a key thoroughfare access point, is leaking water and it is rolling througout the top deck. I see this as an ongoing problem.
I will take pics of the rock climbing and even rapelling wall (or whatever they call it).
