Review summary

This is my first cruise.  I recently lost my wife.  She did not survive transplant of a heart and kidney after a lengthy stay at the hospital.  While there waiting for her donor, she was very hopeful to get better. She would tell me when I get better let us go on a cruise.  So I just fulfilled what she wanted us to do. 

Your staffs would then wonder why am I alone?  I would explained my situation and they were very sympathetic, specially Ron, my room steward.  He took time to expressed his sympathy and told me to just enjoy and he will take care of everything.

Be patient. No matter how efficient the process is, when you deal with thousands of people there will be delays.

I love this place. I love the fact the beach is just there and you do not have to travel.
