Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Enjoyed the fancy dinners in the main dining rooms. Chose "your time dining" which is awesome. Can dine anytime between 6pm and 9:30pm. You go to dining room and they either seat you right away or give you a buzzer (like at TGI Fridays) and you can take the buzzer around the whole ship until your table is ready.

I wish there had been more actual Broadway-style shows. On a different cruise I saw a great rendition of "Cats," and was kind of disappointed that they didn't have any big name shows on this ship. Comedy shows were awesome though!!

Ports Of Call

Key West, Florida

3 out of 5
Key West is a fun town. It is a nice short stop. Duval street is very fun.
Don't Miss: Walking through the Truman Annex to see the amazing Key West-style architecture!

Cozumel, Mexico

3 out of 5
Cozumel's beaches aren't too great, but they are pretty nice. (I am a beach snob because I live in Miami Beach). We rented scooters and drove around the whole was very fun!!

Pros: The activities on the boat

Cons: Ship is a little old
