Review Summary

Our teenagers loved the variety of food that was available at all times of the day and night.  They also thoroughly enjoyed being part of "Club O2" and "Circle C" and as parents, we didn't worry about them being completely on their own and they were never bored!

The game options were a lot of fun (Cranium was great family entertainment), but would have also liked to see more variety of family games.

The evening entertainment was mediocre, more variety of evening options, especially for couples, would have been great.  A dance party on the pool deck earlier in the evening would have been fun too!  The 80's theme got old fast.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food in the Elation dining room had better variety than the buffet. We only had a long wait 1 night, but the rest of the time you could get in and out within an hour.

It was clean, but could use some modernization.

Ship Tip

With the shortened time in Grand Cayman, I would recommend forgoing an excursion and spending more time on the beach with snorkeling. Having an excursion in Cozumel was awesome!
