This was our first cruise, so here's our first impressions...The staff/crew were great, very energetic. I was warned about all the food and how many pounds I might pack on, but actually found very little food that was that exciting. Dinner was fine, breakfast was fair (especially in the dinning room). It was a little annoying that the Dinning staff waited until enough people were seated per section/area before coming to take orders. Makes things easier for them, but often meant a longer wait. We were re-directed due to Hurricane Rina, and we were updated very well and often, which was helpful in making plans.

Several "activities", but not very many shows. Comedians weren't very funny.
