This is our first cruise so we cannot compare it to others. However, it met and exceeded our expectation. The thing we enjoyed the most was the "fun" factor. They made it fun: from the high energy entertainment shows to the singing and dancing by the dinner servers. You won't get bored on the ship as there is always something to do besides just relaxing under the sun.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was good and of variety. Dinner menu and lunch buffet change daily. However, the breakfast and lunch buffet lines were too long.

We went to Cable beach and enjoyed the beach there. The water was clear and the water was calm.

Pros: The food, the fun factor

Cons: The pool was too deep (starting at 4') for little ones
