5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 21, 2016

Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 1506
Traveled As: Family (older children)

Two days at sea with time to chill and explore the ship, plus two beach ports of call where we did some snorkeling and touring. Excellent kids' program on the ship. The specialty restaurants were very good. The ship was in very good shape and very clean; staff was friendly and helpful. Only thing we didn't like was constant emphasis on trying to sell you something. Good thing the ship was big enough to walk away from all that!
