Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 1514
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 2 years ago

There were 12 of us that traveled together.  We had a good time.  My family booked balcony rooms and loved them.  Well worth the extra money.  We were very disappointed in the pool.  Our pool at home is bigger than the outdoor pool on the ship.  The food in the Windjammer was good and we preferred to eat there rather then the "formal" dining room .  We were thirsty and had to travel to a different floor just for a drink of water unless we wanted to pay a very high cost to drink the water provided in the mini fridge in our room.  I would like to have had a drink option of just water , tea or lemonade on every floor.  Entertainment was ok but not anything spectacular.  We booked our own excursions and that all went well we did the Trolly Tour in Key West ate at SLoppy Joe's and enjoyed it... in Cozumel we went to Paradise Beach.  The children enjoyed it.  The food and service was good and we enjoyed it.  a lot of seaweed and not what we expected as far as seeing the beautiful water but overall ok.  We did not enjoy the days at sea as there didn't seem to be enough to keep the 50 something's entertained.

We overall had a decent time but will not look to do this again anytime in the very near future
