We chose this cruise for the itinerary and were pleased to see some of the less frequently visited spots in the Southern Caribbean. The evening entertainment in the main showroom was some of the best we've ever encountered. The stateroom was pretty typical except the controls for cooling/heating were hidden on the ceiling vent. The weather was cool the first few days and I found it difficult to keep warm. Dining room service was good, food not as special as we've sometimes had(no escargot) although mostly very good. They have eliminated tablecloths with the exception of formal nights (3), and dancing waiters most nights got a little tiresome. The buffet food was mostly the same from day to day. The Blue Iguana and Guy's Hamburger place were always a nice change of pace. Daytime activities though were mostly limited to Trivia. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Always nice to have a balcony. Really a very convenient and quiet location.

The ship is older and smaller than lots of others. To get from one end of the ship to the other, you usually have to go through the casino on deck 5, or on 9 by the pool and buffet. If you eat in buffet, the best place to sit is upstairs since it is less crowded.
