All during the comedy show people walked through the show which i found annoying it seems too congested in this area and a few others

I was surprised how nice the room was and the bed was very comfortable...however the bedding was hot the bedding and pillows were very hot

Ship tip

I hate to say this but if you don’t put your towel on a lounger you won’t get to sit in the sun! People put towels on and keep them on all day sometimes they never come back and the. You can’t enjoy the deck! I only saw a worker once put a Note on people’s chairs

Ports of call

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

People rushed out and it was wild! The staff tried their best to keep things smooth but the cruisers were a little in a hurry to leave the bus service made it very easy
