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 Tip

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.
