Food in the main dining room was lacking in flavor. We tried it twice and was not impressed. Guy's Burgers was great. The buffets were pretty good.

Drama Bar

We did the Warwick Resort for the day and it was excellent. Adults only and it was beautiful. All inclusive.

Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island)

5 out of 5
Beautiful island, but it was just a beach day. Only stayed for a few hours because there is nothing else to do there.

With Faster to the Fun we were off the ship within 20 minutes.
