Review SummaryI had a great time with my family, but the ship left a lot to be desired. Embarking was a horrendous 2 hour wait in the car and the vibe was chaotic once we got on the ship. The food in the dining room was great, but other than that, there wasn't much else that was good. Our wait staff was fabulous, but we never even met our steward. Also, the entertainment was terrible. The show on the first night started with a giant couch on stage with moving eye brows and moustache. I wan't sure if I was taking a ride on the great space coaster or being punk'd. It was all very cheesy.

Don't Miss: Trolly tour of the island. Fun and informative.
Don't Miss: Straw market
Pros: Being with my family, the dining room staff, and the chef's table experience.
Cons: The majority of the entertainment staff was terrible and seemed to be hungover every morning. The shows were horrible and cheesy. The decor was very dated and the public bathrooms were filthy even though they constantly had signs on them that they were being cleaned.
