Great Time

Sail Date: September 01, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Oceanview

Very beautiful, large and clean ship. Easy embarkment and disembarkment. Never felt crowded. Wonderful Staff. The food is ok/good...but could be better. Movies under the stars was great. Older crowd, few children, teenagers and young adults.
(which is a plus for many) Disco's are empty at night. This ship "rolls in the sidewalks at 11 pm". The entertainment is typical cruise ship stuff. This isn't a party ship but a great ship to relax on. Rooms are a good size and comfortable. The soda policy is a pain in the often have a long wait for a soda in the dinning room. Free soft serve ice-cream should be included. There isn't a midnight buffet...but a bistro buffet...which is terrible...lots of left over food served at one time. We used private excursions. Phil Lafayette in Ocho Rios to do the Dunns River Falls and Mobey Dick in Grand Cayman. Both excellent and cheaper than the cruise excursions. We rented a car in Cozumel and drove around the island. A great way to do some local shopping. We enjoyed our trip and excursions...but for a 5 star ship there is room for improvement.

Pros: Movies under the stars, The staff

Cons: Soda & Ice cream Policy
