Great first time cruise!

I would highly recommend this cruise.  This was my wife and I's first cruise.  We usually like to go to a Caribbean destination and enjoy the local culture for a time.  Here we were able to experience several islands.  We loved the late night adult comedy shows.  The parades on the promenade.  Just spending time together in our cabin watching the waves go by on the balcony.  Clo, the activities director, was so much fun and amazing!  We tried the first night in the formal dining area.  We didn't like the lack of privacy being seated right next to others and the time it took to get through a whole meal with multiple courses.  We enjoyed every other night eating at our own pace and our own table in the Windjammer dining area.

Cabin / Stateroom
Loved the cabin! Especially the balcony. Our stateroom attendant was outstanding. She folded the towel in to a little dog on the bed one night.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
We were in the last disembarkation group and didn't get off the ship until almost noon. Half the day was gone and we were trying to tour old town San Juan that day. We asked Guest Services why we were in such a late group. They said other's asked to get off earlier. All you have to do is ask before hand? If we had known, then we wouldn't have missed valuable time.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Loved all destinations except St. Kitts. Booked excursions through Delta Skymiles. The tour company for Volcano Hike was a scam. Guy said his guide was hurt and could only do half the tour of the rain forest. We hiked the second half on our own and another tour guide took pity on us after two wrong turns and let us hike with him. Very unsafe!

Loved the view from the Blue Moon lounge! Deck 14 all the way at the top. Overlooking the pool deck for shows and such. Wonderful view while in port. A nice quiet lounge area to grab a drink.
