Review SummaryNever having been on a cruise before, we did not know anything about the layout and standard activities. There was a tour the first day, but we were not made aware of this. It was difficult to find things and to know when the pools were open. There are only 2 small adult pools, with very little space. There is a "sanctuary", but there is a fee and it books up for the week on the first day. The only guide you get is a vague map. There are a lot of additional fees that no one tells you about.
Food and Dining
The food was very fresh, well prepared and offered quite a variety.
The service was terrible. There are specialty restaurants, but there is a fee. There are 2 buffets with different food options, but you are not told ahead of time which is open. Reservations are needed for all dining except buffet.
The shopping guide lectures were like the HSN channel, and the woman was rude and obnoxious. There was no one to help you navigate your way around the island - places to see and things to do. You were instructed to pay for an excursion.
