We had a wonderful time, we traveled with our two kids and they had the time of their lives with the two 12-14 and 15-17 yr old clubs.  The food was magnificent and I gained 7 pounds.  The entire crew is happy and very customer oriented.  It's been about 10 years since I cruised last and it seemed there were more people than I remembered and the lines were very long as it appeared we had to wait in line for food and drinks.  They now charge for pop which you have to go and get yourself at the bar and wait in line for that too.  I also noticed .09 charged every time they serve you drink.  Overall, the experience was great, would love to go again and have a better idea of what to expect.  Getting through the lines of onboarding and debarking are far improved.  Just bring extra cash to this all inclusive cruise....they are selling everything from spa days to excursions to photos which aren't cheap.  Check your bill often, and also know they automatically bill you for what they feel you should tip which is about $12 a day per person.  Just being honest and want to inform but don't want to take away from the positive time we had.  We loved it!
