This was our first cruise so we didn't know what to expect, but we were not disappointed at all. We had a really good time. Excellent weather, food, and very relaxing. The ship was excellent, very clean and well staffed. We ate at the Lido deck at the Buffet and they had something different everyday. The burgers and the deli were exceptional. My favorite was the night we had Prime rib it was to die for. Our stateroom was very nice we had a window which makes a huge difference. Our stateroom person couldn't have been any better. He kept our drinks iced down our room was always perfect and extremely clean. He made cute little towel animals everyday. The only thing that got a little annoying was the waiters for drinks on the Lido Deck. They asked to many times for you to buy beer even if you had a bucket of beer in front of you they still asked. They would have been better off having them cover a certain area, but instead they all covered the whole deck and so as soon as you told one you didn't want beer another would come up and ask you. You almost had to be rude. We used the walking track and the gym machines every day and it was great. You were never bored on the ship. We would recommend this cruise and would do it again in a heart beat.

Nassau, Bahamas
If you like shopping at tons of trinket shops wasn't really much to see at port.
Key West, Florida
Really fun had a lot to see and do.


If you can keep your luggage with you to take on the ship I would do that or at least take your suit in a carry on. My luggage didn't show up till 6 so I had to be in my shorts all day.
