Quick and easy. Most done on line. Able to go directly to stateroom.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Main dining room was disappointing in both the service and food quality. Buffets were good, with lots of choices. The Pizza was incredible. Guy's Pig and Anchor was disappointing, in that food was over cooked, and had a burned taste. The specialty Italian restaurant was incredible, as was JiJi's. Had wonderful experiences at both venues.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
The library bar was quiet and peaceful for reading or a quiet glass of wine. The Superbowl party was a blast.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
The production shows were incredible, and the Piano bar was a blast, lots of energy from the entertainer, and participation from all who went.

Children's Programs

No kids

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Room steward was great, the main dining room staff, Not so much

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
As always, the common areas were well maintained, and the ship was as spotless as it could be.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Balcony cabin. Cabin was clean and comfortable. Slightly smaller than I expected, but comfortable and quiet.

Ship tip

Keep your phone with you.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida Did not visit port

I live 2.5 hours north of this port. Only drove to and from the port.,

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

3 out of 5
No excursion. Went shopping, had an OK time, was not impressed with the pushiness of some of the shop keepers, and was not happy with being exposed to pot smoke everywhere. (I am allergic to it.) This is not an area of Jamaica that I would choose to visit, as I am more interested in the history of the country, and this area has been built around tourist excursions.

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
Lots of shopping. Very good time. No excursions since I have visited this port several times before.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
No excursions, since I have been to this port several tines, but the shopping was terrific, and the weather was the best.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Quick and easy. Best experience I've ever had.
