We loved just about everything about this cruise - The Coral Princess galleys gave Celebrity a run for their money - and Celebrity had one of the best "kitchens" going. Neat midnight buffets - neat demonstrations - neat entertainment.

Food and Dining

The buffet was great, the MDR excellent.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Learned the hard way about purchased internet minutes going away if you don't log out correctly. Our fault - but, still...

Children's Programs

Lot's of kids running around...

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Excellent cabin steward - excellent table staff. Wife loved the spa - and frangipani treatment. Gym had full sets of free weights.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Top notch design and layout for the most part - getting up and down to the MDR was a bit confusing (you had to go up to go down) and we never really got it right).

My general motto is - if it doesn't come from there - don't buy it there. Bought some high karate emerald ear rings - gorgeous and affordable (considering).
5 out of 5
One of my favorite Caribbean destinations.

A hectic disembarkation - but got to the airport with LOTS of time to spare. Should have considered an excursion.
