I went on this vacation with 3 of my best friends, and we had a blast. There was always something going on, and if you didn't feel like participating, there was plenty of sun to enjoy out by the pool. The food was great, especially all the fresh fruit! We also had the best staff. Our waiters and stewards were so nice and always willing to help out or offer suggestions to make our trip all the more enjoyable. We also met some amazing people on the ship and still keep in touch with them today. We loved our excursions and all the things to do on the ship. (the dance club was our favorite late night hang out). But we also enjoyed the piano bar, theater shows and karaoke. Over all, it was the best vacation!

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was great, and there was a great variety every night. And if we weren't happy, our waiter was glad to bring us another option.

Our waiters and steward were exceptionally friendly. So were most of the other staff we encountered during the week.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was large, but easy to navigate. It never once felt crowded and always seemed very clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

We had an interior room, it was kind of small, but there were 4 of us in there! With 4 girls sharing one bathroom it could have been a disaster, but the space was just right for the amount of time we spent in the room...which wasn't very much!

We toured the mayan ruins and then spent a few hours on the beach. It was beautiful, and very educational!

Grand Caymen was GORGEOUS!!! We went snorkeling and then swam with the stingrays. It was the most amazing experience! Then we relaxed at the beach for an hour before heading back to the ship. It was the PERFECT day!
Don't Miss: Stingray City

We hired a guide to drive us up into the rain forest and to Dunn's River Falls. Climbing the falls was both beautiful and challenging. We climbed on our own, without the assistance of a guide. Then went to a local jerk chicken restaurant and back to the pier for some parasailing. It was an awesome day!
Don't Miss: Dunn's River Falls

Pros: food, people, excursions, activities

Cons: nothing comes to mind!
