The ports of call were awesome, no complaints there except the hours in Key West were so funky! we arrived at 7:30am so nothing was open yet.  We found a beach and just hung out until 10am so it wasn't a big deal but we had no game plan when we arrived.  When we first got on the ship we got stuck in the elevator...not a good first impression.  I made my husband fight tooth and nail to get some sort of apology, finally they at least gave us chocolate covered strawberries and champagne. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Comfy bed and hot (super hot) shower. Lifted up the bed skirt when looking for a flip flop and found trash that didn't belong to us. Filthy window.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Embarkation was fine. Disembarkation was the biggest cluster I have ever experienced! No guidance, LONG LONG line through the cabin hallways where they were cleaning and such so you could barley get your suitcase though.
Ship Quality
FILTHY I don't think they have cleaned the windows in years!
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Nothing real fun...a British show and lots of bingo. There was a comedy show that was funny but it was in too small of a room and all of the seats were taken so we had to stand.
