What I liked about the cruise is that it catered to everyone, families, couples and singles. Depending on what crowd you were looking for, they could be found. There were activities on the boat for all types of people so no one should have felt left out.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
All the food was good. Our dining room experience was lack luster only because we were at a table in the back corner. The servers could have been a bit more attentive, especially the bar maid.

Cabaret shows were good, but of course a little cheesy. They were probably geared towards the older crowd. The two comedians on board were a riot if you caught the late "mature audiance" shows. We weren't into the heavy party scenes around the main pool deck, so we didn't experience the "hairy chest" competition.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Stateroom steward amd his helper were great. Photographers and bar staff were attentive. Non dining room food staff were good. Evening dining room staff could have been better.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The lay out was nice. There was the show lounge in the front of the ship with the bars, dining rooms and casino in the middle and the back of the boat.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
We had a nice stateroom. It was smallish, but we did not spend time in it except for resting and sleeping

The mini-jeep eco tour was awesome. We got to see lots of wildlife, both on land and in the ocean while snorkeling. The shops near the docks had a good variety of merchandise, but be prepared to haggle with the merchants. Don't be afraid to walk away if you think the price is too high because they will run out of the store after you to make the sale.

Pros: Activities, variety of shore excursions

Cons: Dining Room experience, cost of alcoholic beverages
