Very good ship. Outdoor movie theater is great. Show the NBC Today show every morning and good movies at night. Don't plan on going near pools. Parties everyday and cannot get near them. I recommend the 21 year old area of the ship if you do not have children. Grand Cayman is awesome. Do not buy shore trip. $5 taxi ride to Seven mile beach and $10 to rent chair and umbrella at public beach. Biggest draw back is $7 a beer. On days at sea if planning to lay out\, get there before 8am. Between 8am and 9am all chairs will be taken. Entertainment is average. Casino is nice. Good bands on ship. Just MAKE SURE you carry on a change of clothes when you first arrive because getting luggage the first day is a nightmare. Mine did not come until 8am and I had no swimming suit with me that I carried on.
