This was an excellent cruise for our first time out. Although the first day of sailing was rough and we didn't fare well all day the crew helped out. We enjoyed all of the food on board as well as the entertainment. The shows that were presented were of top quality and very enjoyable. The comedians on the ship were awesome. The one thing that we enjoyed the most was the atmosphere of the dining room and our Head Waiter Gede and his assistant Dana. If we book another cruise we will look to see if we can find out what cruise they are on and request to be seated at their table. They were awesome.

Not a very interesting port. Too small and not much to do.
5 out of 5
The shops that are listed are very expensive and the items that they give away to get you in the shops are a waste of time.
Don't Miss: Margaritiville is a good restraunt, great atmosphere and friendly wait staff.

Pros: The atmosphere, cruise director and of course our waiters in the dining room.

Cons: Pools were not big enough and always crowded
