Great cruise, but did have a few issues with room which kept it from being excellent.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Oceanview Cafe food was very good, Blu food not great first few nights, but greatly improved last part of week. Love burgers in Mast Grill.

Onboard Activities

Did not do any activities but survey makes you answer

Entertainment

5 out of 5
I have seen the Production shows many times, but this production crew was incredible. Best I've seen, so we did not skip any. Kevin Jordan and Dave Burleigh were great, we went to both late night shows as well.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Blu waiter Hector and Sommelier Sugando were great. Captain Tasos is great, love his sense of humor and visibility through out the cruise.

Ship Quality

Love the new refresh. The addition of Craft Social

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The room itself was great, love the additional drawers with the refresh. But we had to have the safe replaced 4 times. Room service did not arrive because they said our phone wasn't working. Guest Services said it was, but room service could not call before a delivery. It was reported and never fixed. Very unlike Celebrity.

Ship tip

Going to the early show there are more seats and frees up the rest of your evening.

Ports of call

Key West, Florida

Booked trolley through the ship, much cheaper than online.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Booked through the ship Cachobbean Ruins. This was our third trip but guide Jesus and driver Victor made the trip very informative.

Cozumel, Mexico

3 out of 5
Booked a 4 /2 hour Market Exploration. We spent too much time at stops and stopped at beach which was a waste of 20 minutes. We did not get back to downtown area until 5 hours and there was another 30 minutes of shopping on schedule before returning to ship. With 2 diabetics we chose to leave tour and get cab back to ship this ended up to be a 5 1/2 hour trip. Others did not get back until well after 6 hours.

George Town, Grand Cayman

4 out of 5
Walked downtown by ourselves. Considering 4 ships in was not too crowded. Got our free stuff and went back to ship.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
This is so easy now.
