If you want a fun ship, this is it

Sail Date: February 04, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship is impressive and having two smaller dining rooms instead of one huge one was a plus. The staff was unfailingly friendly and polite and the ship was immaculate with comfortable staterooms...and, as others have already said, the beds are great. Food was abundant and surprisingly good and the breakfast and lunch buffets had a lot of variety. The shows were okay, about the caliber of a Vegas lounge act.
It was easy to get off the ship at each port and the places we visited were gorgeous with great beaches and snorkeling. However, six gigantic ships in port at the same time in the Caymans made it seem like New York!

Pros: Friendly staff, comfortable staterooms, ports of call, food

Cons: Hard drinking fellow cruisers, expense of shore excursions
