Guy's Burgers and Blue Iguana Tacos are my go to. MDR selections were good. We enjoyed Sea Day Brunch and Dr Seuss Breakfast was our favorite.

Our room stewart, Rony, was amazing. Our ice bucket was never empty. He was a true pleasure.

Cabin / Stateroom

This cabin had its good and bad. Our balcony had no "roof" since we were on deck 11. This was great for star gazing but not so much when they rinsed off the serenity deck above us every morning. We also heard the chairs being dragged on the deck above us at 5am... Every morning. Will not book this location again. Good part is it was a spa room and our room stewart was awesome.

Ship tip

Learn the layout. Pack some patience. Pool and serenity areas don't have enough space on sea days. Get there early if you want a chair.

Having to go to another part of this chopped up ship (decks 3 & 4), on debarkation morning, to pick up your booze is ridiculous. We have always had it delivered to our room the night before, so this was a first. Being this is my home port, I sail from here often. This was the worst as far as time it took to get through customs. And we did Self assist.
