If you have never cruised on other Cruise lines this is a good one to start with.  The fare was low and we got what we paid for.  The food was subpar but our dinner server was great.  the shows are okay.  We took the catamaran to the Stingray sand bar excursion and loved it.  We did the sand buggie and snorkel in Cozamel and did not like it.  they took us snorkeling in a spot that had nothing to see.  We were very rushed.  The entertainment was so so but they did very good the last night.  call

I recommend you never try to pass off the lobster bisque as lobster bisque again.

Our dinner server was the best. The pool service was too busy flirting with the girls.

We were so rushed through the excursion and our tour guides were a bit rude. Cayman island excursion was great and the tour guides were amazing!
