This is a good value destination and ship for a quick 5 day trip. The ship is crowded

And lots of Kids. Reasonably priced. You will not get an extravagant buffet.  However, you can also have pizza. Burgers and 3 specialty restaurant choices for a additional charge on the specialty.  The night sit down dinners were very good and service was great. The nightly outdoor movies were nice. The loungers were hard to find due to the large number of people. On board pools were packed.

Entertainment was fair, I wish they had more on board programs. Overall, you will enjoy the cruise.

The cabin was fairly clean. Our Stewart was courteous, and fairly thorough. This was our smallest balcony of 5 cruises. Plenty of storage TV was very small. Beds were firm.

Ship Tip

If you are expecting a luxurious cruise, this is not it. Lots of crowds and Kids.
However, we were not surprised. We feel we got exactly what we signed on for. Food was OK and adequate. Guys burgers and pizza was OK. Alchemy bar was our martini bar of choice. Most pleasant crew on board.

Stay at the Radisson for car parking and ship shuttle. Went very smooth.

We were happy to have rented a Cabana. Comes complete with huge amounts of snacks and soft drinks. The bar was very hard to get a drink.

Take the bike ride. Mikey our guide was very informative and fun. Not overly strenuous. Learned of the island history.
