This was our first cruise and we had a blast!  Everything on the ship was fun and we have tons of memories and pictures to remind us.


High Notes:

Alchemy Bar - If you have a chance to go here, do it.  The drinks and the staff are amazing!

Stewards/Housekeeping - Very friendly and hard workers.  Our stateroom was always immaculate and who doesn't love a towel animal waiting for you every night.

Entertainment - The musicals were very fun and the comedians on board were hilarious.

Ports of Call - Grand Cayman and Cozumel were great, eventhough we didn't have any excursions.


Low Notes:

Bed - The beds were rock hard and made it difficult for a side sleeper like myself to sleep comfortably.

Onboard Prices - Wooo. Everything onboard is pricey to an extent of doubling the price of the cruise after we were finished.

Port of Call - Jamaica was not as fun as the other two ports.  The aggressive locals made for a bad experience for us.

The food was decent with the vegetarian dishes being much better than the meat dishes.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The cabin is nice eventhough it's way at the back. The noise level was low and other than the beds, the room was comfortable to be in.

Ship Tip

Think very hard about how much you will drink. And if you drink, don't skimp on the cheaper drinks, go for the ones that are more expensive or have a floater. They're MUCH more satisfying and you won't need as many.

Go on an excursion here. The locals make the experience an unhappy one.
