For anyone with motion sickness, be sure to wear the patch or take dramamine. If you've heard that big ships don't rock, it is untrue. Most of the ship's crew are foreign and hard to understand and they have a hard time understanding you. Prepare to pay $9 - $12 per alcoholic drink. The food isn't all that great. Although the best place to eat is the dining room. Really read the shore excursions booklet before deciding on what to do because a lot of them have certain restrictions like weight, waist size, etc and once you buy them there are no refunds. Prepare to wait a lot and have people cut in front of you. Also anything you purchase on the ship you have to declare at customs. 

Cabin / Stateroom
It wasn't as clean as it could've been. Be sure to check the volume on the phone.
Children's Programs
This really doesn't apply to us because we don't have kids.
The comedy shows are awesome!
Service and Staff
Some are helpful and others seemed bothered by assisting us.
Food and Dining
A lot of food had no taste but best place to eat is on the dining room Wind Star.

Parasailing is awesome even if you are afraid of heights like me. It was more like floating. Worth a try!
Cozumel, Mexico You can barter with the shop keepers and get things cheaper


Motion sickness is an issue even on a big ship. You will still feel the rocking quite a bit. Be sure to read the daily itinerary they provide so you know what is going on.
