Itinerary: Caribbean - Western

Highly recommend! This was the most relaxing, fastest week I have ever had. Total different atmosphere than my two previous cruises. Much classier. This was a very beautiful well maintained ship. One would never believe it was 7yrs old.

Public Areas
After dinner and on the way to the theater we always stopped at Tasters to have a drink and people watch.The outside deck aft of the Island Cafe was a great place to relax and watch the wake of the ship.The casino was laid out very nice and was always room to participate.I did think the slots were "a little tight" in their pay outs.Hemisphers was a beautiful lounge with wonderful views.

Food and Service
The dining room was a beautiful place with a wonderful atmosphere to enjoy food and friends.I don't know how the food and service could be better.The buffet at the Island Cafe was excellent very little waiting.Staff everyware to assist you to your table a very nice touch.

We were fortunate to have a balconied room on the penthouse deck.We actually didn't use all the available storage and believe me we had plenty to store.The bath was all marble and large enough for one to shower(or bath) and the other to shave put on make-up etc.Could not have been more comfortable. It became "home" real quickly.

I don't know how they do it(week after week) but the staff truly made you feel like they were really glad you were there.Entertainment was fair.Dancers and singers were a little weak.The orchestra was excellent. Mark Preston and the "ladder Man" were definitely worth seeing.

I loved the fact that there were no announcements constantly blaring over the P.A.I also was never pressured into spending money.I did get that feeling on the other cruise line.One thing that could use improving is the ship photography.The way it was laid out it was always crowded and slow.

Who Goes
The passengers ranged in age from 30-70 very few children. During the entire week I never heard a sour note or complaint from anyone.
