Review summary

Great time. Met a lot of great people. Sucked was the DJ and his choice of music, Karaoke and their choice of music, and how not cold my room was.

Food and Dining

The dining we enjoyed a lot. The waiters we had were fantastic. They were entertaining and recalled us so that we can continue previous conversations and the like. They added to the great time we had.

Freedom Restaurant

I didn't eat anything that I didn't like. I really liked the BBQ. I was able to try it the 2nd to last day. Good I did so I could go back and get it again on the last day. It was delicious.

The Chic Restaurant

5 out of 5

Great waitstaff. We got a great waiter each time. They were pleasant and wonderful and recalled our names and was able to talk about what we had the previous night.

Steakhouse

I enjoyed what I got and for the price it was well worth going. Everything was delicious. The dessert was fantastic.

Guy's Burger Joint

5 out of 5

The burgers were delicious. Loved it every time I got one. And the fries were yummy. No need for ketchup.

70's Dance Club

The music wasn't a variety of greatness. It was just okay. Not nearly as fun as it could've been. I had more fun at a bar on Roatan with their DJ than on the ship.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
I used the fitness center for most of the cruise. I had no issues. I enjoyed it. Karaoke was fun the last two days. But the previous days it was overran with people that sang the same thing over and over again. Not enough variety and I think that scared people from coming in and doing anything. The only reason it got better is because we got a group together to go to have fun. It was a little stiff with the older crowd.

Fitness Center

It was well kept and it was what I expected and needed.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
I give 5 stars because everyone I dealt with was great and entertaining. The Band Elixir 6 were fantastic. I enjoyed them whenever we heard them. I enjoyed the hosts to many different events I went to and they were all pleasant and great. My only issue was the DJ because the songs he played at the club and elsewhere were repeated and it wasn't a great variety. Not like one would expect.

Cabin / Stateroom

My cabin was okay because I wanted it to be cold. But it wouldn't get cold and then I was told that's how it was supposed to be. Well I couldn't get a full night's sleep because of it.
