I had a great time on the ship because of the people we were with. I felt the food was lacking, the drinks were very expensive, we weren't able to dock in Freeport and the staff seemed cranky about having to work the extra day at sea, but regardless, we made the best of it and I would cruise again, I just might try another cruise line.

Cabin / Stateroom

The size of the rooms were small, but we didn't stay in the rooms much.

Pros: I liked the dolphin excursion the most.

Cons: The drinks cost WAY too much and the some of the staff members, especially the Karaoke lady, were jerks.
