Overall a great time. The ship was large, fast elevators for the older/lazy guests. Food was good, like any other cruise. The service was good, although most of the bartenders seemed pissed off everyday. The huge amount of children getting a new soda every 5 minutes may have played a role in that. It seemed like the final night of the cruise that the staff stopped caring. Not refilling the juice or ice after asking several times, our room wasting cleaned or towels refreshed the final day at sea. The drinks weren't overly expensive, but still weren't economical. It seemed like there were staff photographers at every corner, wanting you to buy the pictures they shot. I would like to go on this ship again, and recommend it.

Playa Mia. $40 ticket gives you all you can drink from 10-6 pm. A really fun time, food is available, contests, nice pool, ocean has a trampoline and giant iceberg. The ice berg was a pretty far swim. By the time I got out there, it was very hard to climb up it. Make sure to barter anytime you are buying something, especially cab rides or souvenirs

Margaritaville was fun. They give out free tequila hosts every hour, the DJ leads dancing contests, best beer chugger contests, a fun time!

Pros: Service was great, boat was nice

Cons: Out of 2000 guests, 1000 kids 10 yrs and younger.
