Review SummaryThe ship was excellent and very clean. The public areas were fun and the decor was playful. The teen facilities were awsome and so was the casino. We had an ocean view cabin which was very nice and roomier than some others we have had. Our room steward was fantastic and addressed each of us by name each time he saw us. He never missed a beat and our room was always in order.
The dining room staff was great as well. We were seated in a smaller overflow dining room because the ship was very full. This was disappointing as our daughter missed out on the usual dining room banter, singing waiters and parade of flaming desserts that the kids tend to love. The food was merely average but the presentation was artistic. We did enjoy the made to oder omlettes and stirfry counters in the buffet area and breakfast in the restaraunt was perhaps the best meal we had on board.
The bar services and waiters/waitresses were great and very attentive, especially in the casino.
The Itinerary was great (Cozumel, Grand Caymen, and Jamaica). We spent Christmas day in Jamaica and that was probably the best day of the cruise. The shore excursions that we booked through the cruise line were fabulous (Segway and snorkeling in Cozumel, Pirate adventure in Grand Caymen, and Horseback riding in the ocean in Jamaica). The tour guides were great and took wonderful care of us, making sure we all had a safe and fun adventure.
Overall this was a wonderful trip.
Ports of Call
Don't Miss: Shopping, shopping, shopping, and horesback riding in the ocean.
Don't Miss: Anything that involves swimming should not be missed, the water is crystal clear, just be careflul of the jellyfish.
Don't Miss: Definitey go snorkeling, the fish are numerous, and beatiful and they will let you 'pet' them.
Pros: Everthing was so CLEAN and the staff was wonderful.
Cons: The food was merely average and the dining room assignment was disappointing
