Beautiful boat - a little cold!

The stops on this cruise weren't that great (Port Canaveral, Nassau and Freeport) If you are someone who likes to be on the boat and doesn't care so much about how often or where you stop, this might be the perfect cruise for you. The boat is fantastic and beautiful, staff were great, food was wonderful. We tried to eat at the 'alternative dining' location, David's and decided to skip it. The restaurant was basically empty, but we couldn't get a seat by a window and it just didn't seem worth $35 per person when the food and service in the dining room was perfectly fine. You still have to pay for drinks and everything when you eat there.
One other frustration - this boat is extremely large and probably full to the brim while we were there. There was a lot of waiting in line for everything, a fight almost broke out at the 'adults only' pool area due to lack of chairs. The kids on the boat were always running around doing different activities they would frequently cut in front of you at the food and ice cream lines.
Overall, it was a very goo d experience - next time I would choose a warmer climate to start out and a route with more frequent stops.

Pros: The boat was absolutely beautiful, the staff was fabulous and attentive

Cons: The first three days of our cruise were pretty cold - just something you should expect if you go!
