We were very impressed of the ships capabilities to reschedule and reroute the ship to avoid the bad weather so that we could better enjoy the sunny, beautiful sun and seas.  The ports were very clean and organized.  We had a great time at CoCo Cay in the VIP beach area that included an upgraded lunch, snorkeling gear, floats, and private area away from the crowds.  It was very peaceful and nice to be away from the mass of people and noises.  


The people were great, not too many children, and good amount of young adults (25-35) in the dance area in the late night.  DJ could have read the room a little better but it wasn't going to stop us from enjoying our evening.


Only complaint that we did not see out bartender in the main dining any of the nights.  We simply learned to bring our own drinks from the bar, but that was definitely a miss.


We would do another cruise of this size again.

Ship Tip

Tip:  buy the drink packages prior to the cruise.  They are less expensive and definitely worth it!  Standard mixed drinks ranged from $8-$11 dollars - easy to go through in one day.
