First, crew and staff are excellent. 

Unfortunately, the ports (except Cosumel), are lacking the infrastructure to handle the thousands of people who disembark. Realizing the tourism dollar is a much needed (read "only") boost to their economy, it really does no justice to the people on land or on ship to disgorge these huge numbers of people. Definitely would not return.

Very disappointed with quality of food.

Honestly, our waiter had a much better singing voice than the lead singers in the show.

Avoid Lido deck unless you want cattle car experiences.
