Review SummaryThe ship was very clean. Staterooms taken care of twice a day was awesome. Lay a glass down and it disappeared in less than 5 minutes. The staff were so well trained in customer service. All deserved to be tipped extra. The activities on board kept you busy 24/7. Nightlife was a bit scarce. The staff who were not working, partied in the Diamonds club late at night and would not talk, dance or fraternize with any of the patrons. I think it would have been a little more fun to get to know them better. The casino really does need to pay out a little better, to have people spend more money and stay longer. Also more staff need to be around (standing in remote areas) for when people get lost. Hard to get to the back of the ship for dinner. Up, down, around you go until you finally figure it out ( on your last day)! And definitely don't get a warm drink! They do not credit you, or replace it. They only offer ice! And anybody who travels extensively knows, DO NOT drink any water, except bottled (sealed top) or the ice! Can really mess up your stomach. But overall, those silly little suggestions and personal opinions should not stop anyone from going on this cruise. Wanted to go back next day and looking to book my next one ASAP. Loved It!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! P.S. The dining staff were out of this world, along with the food!!

Pros: The time away from reality with wonderful customer service and anything we needed to spoil us.
Cons: How short it was and the Key West excursion was too short to see or do anything significant
