Ship Quality
Food and Dining
At the end of the evening the servers put on a little show for the guest. The only problem was they all gathered in the middle of the dinning room. So if the guest on the outside wanted to see, we had to stand up and move over to the railing, with really makes it hard for everyone else to see. On the other ships we have traveled on, the servers we allowed to stay near the guest they were serving and even encouraged the guest to get up and participate with them. It was a lot more fun than just standing around watching. We spoke with the matre d' in the Lincoln dining room and the thought it was a good idea.
Cabin / Stateroom
I love the beds on these ship, they are so comfortable, like sleeping on a cloud.
Service and Staff
The staff was very friendly and was always there to see if you needed any help.

Zuzanna in the Lincoln Dining Room was the best. She was so friendly and sweet. We couldn't wait to see her at dinner.

We booked the Pirates of the Caribbean Zip Line Canopy Tour. It was a blast. Unlike the one you book on the ship, you have a lot more freedom. The lines are longer so you spend less time hooking and unhooking and a lot more time flying through the air. After the zip line, they took us over to Fantasy Island. The was the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. And the snorkeling was amazing. We highly recommend this tour
Don't Miss: Pirates of the Caribean Canopy Tour and Fantasy Island Beach
Cozumel, Mexico
The Diving again. It was just like you see in the movie finding Nemo. You get into the flying position, get in the current and just watch the reef go by. It was beautiful. Just one hint. We read the directions they gave us to the shop and chose to walk. Not knowing it was 4 miles away. With 30 pounds of gear on our backs it was a bit of a trek. Take the Taxi to the shop. It is worth it.
Don't Miss: Aldora Divers was the best.
Belize City, Belize
The most beautiful Diving spots in the world.
Don't Miss: SeaSports Belize they only take small groups, but Oh my god the places they take you are amazing.
George Town, Grand Cayman
The diving. We chose to go on our own and went to Eden Rock Dive shop. They were friendly and very helpful with the equipment rental and also gave a map of the locations underwater.
