This cruise was a way to connect with friends we made on a previous cruise. We had a hiccup at dinner the first night with the waiter and bad service, but that was resolved. We first experienced the Alchemy Bar last year on the Pride and were happy we did and this one was even better. Dario, Parviz and Ranko were great they were attentive engaging and professional. The food was good with the exception of room service. The Spa was a bit pricey as that was something we wanted to do while onboard. Puerto Rico was beautiful and Old San Juan was fun. We had a great job on St. Thomas and did the sky life to Paradise Point if you have a chance to do this make sure you order a Bushwhacker. Turks and Caicos was beautiful, but extremely hot so we didnt experience to much of it. Overall a great time, but Alchemy was the highlight of the trip.

Cabin / Stateroom Room was a bit on the smaller size for a balcony, spa was the deciding factor in getting it. AC wasn't cold in the evening, but was during the day.
