Review SummaryThis was our first cruise. The Zenith is obviously not a brand new ship, but the ship was clean and well maintained. We were absolutely stunned about the boarding process. We expected to wait in line for a couple of hours and we were on board within ten minutes of arriving at the pier.
The food was almost always very good. We participated in karoke, gambled in the casino, caught a couple of the shows and in general had a very good time.
We went ashore at Grand Cayman and we were impressed with the way they got everyone on and off the ship in a timely fashion. We enjoyed our Rays, Reef and Rum tour, we felt safe and unhurried. They allowed us plenty of time to reboard the ship.
We were on the cruise with a lot of college students on spring break. You couldn't even see the pool, much less use it unless you did it very early in the day. The college students were rowdy, but they were also polite and relatively well-behaved.
The greatest shock was coming home. There was no one to feed us and we had to do the dishes!
All in all, a wonderful time and we will try cruising again.

Don't Miss: Have a piece of pie at the key lime pie factory. The hogsbreath saloon is also fun.
Don't Miss: Rays, reef and rum tour
Pros: We loved the service, the pampering, and the ability to choose whatever we wanted to do from a huge variety of options.
Cons: We didn't like the way we were notified of customs clearance times. It would have been nice to have a sheet in the room telling us of what we were required to do on each day at the beginning of the cruise.
