We had been to all ports before. We just like cruising. After 54 cruises it's still what we like.The food was the most disappointing. I guess they have to cut corners somewhere to keep the ships full.

Can't wait to go on another cruise, had a very enjoyable time. No excursions just lots of family time and great weather. Fabulous food and lots to do if you wanted.

The breakfast in the dining room was excellent. We went there the last 2 days...wish we had done it sooner.

Don't get in a hurry to buy gifts or extra services (spa, upgraded dining, etc.) Each night you will get a sheet outlining the next day's activities that will have specials - like half price spa day! Significant savings.
