Overall, the ship was wonderul. It was spring break so it was at maximum capacity. Lines tended to be a little long. The crew was wonderful and did their best to stay ahead of it. We didn't like having to walk through smoking areas to get any where. That was our only complaint. It was every where and there were no outdoor areas where you could get away from it. Even some enclosed areas (casino, night clubs, etc.) where filled with smoke. Our cabin was amazing and larger than normal. It was #1001.

Pros: the relaxing atmosphere

Cons: too much smoking, couldn't get away from it

Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Dunn's River falls is amazing but the guides will pressure you to tip them. Take small bills and lots of them. They will follow you around and corner you to give them a tip. It was a little scary. I loved climbing the falls but would not have been heartbroken to skip Jamaica. The people around the port are very agressive and you have to watch out for pick pockets.
Cozumel, Mexico
Our excursions were canceled due to wind so didn't get to do what we planned. We did enjoy the shopping. There were no pushy sales people to worry about.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Must go to Stingray City!!! Also, the turtle farm. They were the most amazing experiences of our lives! Don't be afraid to kiss a stringray!
