My favorite part of the cruise was the stop in Grand Cayman and Cozumel. The dinners in the Crimson dining room were superb. The breakfast and brunch in the burgundy dining rooms was also great. The Lido buffet however not so much. The same foods get old and most of it is bland. The adult drinks weren't great so we didn't waste the money on those. You can buy the soda package but even those seemed flat and odd tasting. Stick to the water with lemon! The tea, that's a whole other story. Not. Good. At. All. The shows and comedy club are great as well as the entertainment staff. They go above and beyond to make sure your stay is great. I'm not sure that I will ever take another cruise as apposed to an all inclusive, again.

The cove balcony was great. The cove part blocked the wind and we still got to be out and get fresh air as we wanted.

Ship Tip

Take advantage of the dining rooms for all meals and see the shows.
