Review summary

We enjoyed the cruise.  The service from waiters, waitresses and housekeeping was excellent.  Some things need to be changed.  Getting on board take more time than getting through airport security.  We had to show our Sign and Sail card 4 times before getting on board.  Also getting off the ship - everyone was upset because we were told to go to 5 but no staff was there to guide us where to go and also we were not told we could get off first because we had a shore excursion - where others did.  Departing on the final day the announcement was made to go to 5 - then we were told at Guest Services the day before to go to 3.  When we tried a staff person, told to go to 4 if we were leaving early for our flights.  Also everyone (including us) was aggravated when the internet plan wouldn't work on cell phones or the computers provided.

Very good housekeeping, though ours could have used vacuuming. Found a pill on the floor the day we arrived. Could have been a crisis if a child had been with us.

Ship tip

Don't buy the internet plan unless you want to get on only about 5 a.m.
