Itinerary: Caribbean - Eastern

We would certainly do this cruise again for the service, price and experience. We liked the mix of ages of passengers. Lots of families from Grandparents down to wee kids. Activities for all ages.

Public Areas
Hot tubs were wonderful, decorating was spectacular, clean as a whistle everywhere. Casino - very nice - learned to play roulette. Lounges well attended as were the shows. Live music all over the ship. Gym was fantastic. Lots of places to sit and people watch.

Food and Service
We loved the food in the dining room. We had breakfast in our cabin every day. (free) Various food stations for lunch - pasta bar was popular. Midnight buffets were great. Lots of good fresh fruit, and veggies. Well prepared and presented food, excellent and attentive service at our table.

Cabin was 210 sq ft, ocean view with verandah. Room for 2 chairs and a table on the verandah and we used it a lot. 2 large hanging closets, and one more with shelves. Lots of drawer space and bathroom was a good size too. Shower was more than adequate. We three adults shared the cabin. 2 twins and the sofa became another twin. More than enough room. Never heard a thing from surrounding cabins or outside.

Shows were entertaining, theatre was spectacular. Comfortable seats. Few bad views. Live music all over the ship in different lounges. Something for everyone. Something special each night and the cruise director and staff did a wonderful job for all ages.

Great cruise - Key West: 1/2 day, quaint, nice shops, Cozumel: all day, shopped, great beaches and taxis are gov't regulated. Day at sea - lots of activities. Ocho Rios: excursions were well attended. Grand Cayman: tendered in. Shopping and excursions well attended. Day at sea - toga night was a blast!

Who Goes
Our table was wonderful, and we have exchanged emails. We also hooked up with couples on a cruise message board and met them at the airport and on the ship and still keep in contact. We would cruise with them again.
