Easy embarkation. Staff was uniformly courteous.I suggest the name tags have larger letters so we can more easily call the staff by name.  Entertainment was good, but not Wow!  Cruise director was very hard working, but found humor in criticism of his Activities Director - no room for this in today's world. High praise for fitness center, serenity deck and aqua solarium food court - all made the trip so much more enjoyable. Guest relations was very accommodating and saved us big money by advising DIY places to go on the islands rather than the available excursions. Room was quite small - we were in a deluxe veranda - and the bathroom may be a challenge for big people. Food was good in Oceanview and Grand Cuvee, specialty restaurants were very good but annoyingly pricey - $40 + per. I fail to understand why specialty coffee drinks are not free in all dining places. Also, in this day and age of internet, a $100 p charge for wireless is outrageous and objectionable. On positive note, these features were well thought out and added to the measure of the cruise - cold towels available when reboarding, Martini Bar was fun and bartenders bartenders gifted. Captain and senior staff were readily accessible. Overall, cruise was enjoyable but with some common sensical changes, the experience could be exceptional.


Ship Quality
clean. clear the ship is well managed throughout.
Food and Dining
nothing really wowed me among the food choices
Service and Staff
exceptional. Lesa our server in Grand Cuvee and sometimes in the Oceanview was beyond courteous.
enjoyable but not wow. comedians were best of the shows.
Onboard Activities
cruise director and activities director work hard but were silly.
Destinations and Excursions
Cabin / Stateroom
Bigger people may be challenged in shower.
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
easy embarkation, nearby parking is sime.
Cozumel, Mexico
head to Paradise Beach for a fun day. caution- charge card payments have a 25% surcharge.
George Town, Grand Cayman
taxi to 7 mile beach is way to go.
Falmouth, Jamaica
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
beware of very rocky shore line and strong currents. lots of good shade trees.


Use guest relations recommendations rather than excursions to save big money and be on your own. Martini Bar is central party place on ship, even if you do not drink martinis. Bring your own water bottles to save on costs of staying hydrated. Fitness center is outstanding, get there early.
