Our first cruise

Sail Date: April 13, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We were not sure what to expect,  the rooms were lovely very spacious.  Staff was always helpful and friendly.  Wish we had picked an early diner time so we could enjoy the entertainment at night.  Looking forward to our next cruise. As for the shore excursion I probably wouldn't not do one if the boat was arriving early in the morning, at least not the all inclusive anyway.  Food was a little salty, so we order our breakfast everyday.   Over all lots to do on the boat when at see.  If the cruise line could change anything,  you should offer different drink programs, so you don't have to purchase a drink card for everyday.  

Ship Quality
Very clean and staff very helpful.
Food and Dining
food was salty, dining meals at night where good and different variety to pick from.

Service and Staff
Excellent staff.
Didn't get to see a lot. Early mornings and lots of sun, made for early nights
Children's Programs didnt need this service
Onboard Activities
lots to see and do. Could have more time between activities.
Destinations and Excursions
I wouldn't do an early morning excursion again, because I didn't get to see much of one port. The excursions in Cozumel were great. Would go again.
Tampa, Florida
Went to a lot of beaches, had sun everyday.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Beaches where lovely, I would have opted out of the excursion to explore the shops in Grand Cayman
Cozumel, Mexico
loved Cozumel, beautiful beach, great excursion loved the twister boat ride, hector and Louis made the excursion perfect.


do early evening diner, so you can see evening shows. Pool was small, but enjoyed the hot tub. Take time to get to know the ship when you first get on board. For the first time, it was nice and would go again.
