If I had not been on my honeymoon, I would have not been pleased with this cruise.  Food in the dining room and buffet was only so-so.  Special restaurants were nice, but you don't want to feel that you have to eat at a special restaurant to have a good experience.  Cocktails were good, but very expensive-- and the program to buy 15 drinks a day for a special price was way too boozy for me.  We had to cancel visiting the last island, and the communication for that was poor-- and no compensation or extra events to make up for it.  Was charged for "Sunshine Club" fees throughout the cruise-- and still can not figure out what those were for, and was charged for that multiple time. Meh.

Cabin / Stateroom
Awkward bathroom, very very small cabin. No refrigerator.

The Alchemy Bar is clearly the spot to get high quality cocktails, good vibe there as well.
