Overall, the cruise met my expectations and exceeded in some areas. We chose this cruise based on the itinerary. The ship was very nice and clean and the staff were very accomodating.
Food and Dining
5 out of 5
I was not that impressed with the Restaurant on board. It was $30.00 extra pp and the food was similar to eating in the dining room.
On the positive side, I will say that the service was impeccable and the presentation of the food excellent.

We had a suite. It was a little smaller than other cruise lines but very nice and comfortable.
We took a taxi to a local beach and did some water sports. We did not get to see much of the Island.
Pros: The ship's cleanliness and service, although staff was not overly friendly, the service was good.
Cons: I really enjoy the pool area. It was disappointing that children were allowed in the whirl pools. Because the two main pools were at least 4 ft. deep, the children were using the whirlpools as the kiddie pool. There were always up to 10 kids in each whirl pool. Not very romantic.
