The itinerary was nice.  Loved the islands.  Embarkation was a breeze, debarkation on the other hand, was a little crazy.  We pulled into port at 7:15 and we were supposed to be debarking a couple of zones by then.  If you have an early flight, don't do it.  1/2 way through the cruise, I started getting bites and they were itchy.  SInce we were in the tropics, I assumed mosquitos.  I was wrong.  When I got back home, I went to the Dr because the itch was so intense.  He told me it was bed bugs.  Ugh.  I had to wash everything in HOT water, decontaminate my luggage, etc.  We have been back for 3 weeks and I am still itchy!  As far as the dining, there were only 2 meals we enjoyed.  The rest were mediocre at best.  The Dynamic Dining does not work.  We were a party of 2 and had difficulty getting a reservation.  Our steward was great.  I felt all the activities were limited.  Please be sure to book them before you get on board!  Tried to book the puzzle room when I got onboard, but it was fully booked.  I didn't see it in my cruise planner either.  Bumper cars were fun, but it was an hour wait.  We were never able to get a chair near the pool.  Always available one deck up however.  I have sailed 15 cruises now, and would not consider another Quantum class.  To each his own.  Wink
