Review SummaryI had little to no expectations of what to do on the ship, because I was a first time cruiser. After only minutes, I was bombarded with dozens of events and activities. Live dancing performances, ice skating, rock climbing, humorous pool side activities such as belly flop contests, comedians, a night club, lively piano bars with talented musicians, and the best karaoke experience ever - the entire room was singing along!
The dinner selection was spectacular! I've never been big on seafood, but the menu is designed so that I didn't have to pay for anything! I tried salmon, escargot, scallops, lobster, and other meats such as duck and lamb! Every dish was perfect and beautifully presented! By the end of our week, we were taking full advantage of the options by ordering three appetizers, three entres, and two deserts each. This alone makes the price of the cruise worth while.
Boarding was also a breeze once we docked on the island. A quick swipe of your room card, and you're the boat. Briefly wait to go through the metal detector, and your on the boat!
Lastly, the selection of artwork was beautiful. I regret not going to the auction to buy some of the limited pieces. Luckily, they were on display through the cruise to help inspire my imagination.
If you are having any hesitations, I strongly assure you that they are unwarranted. The staff was sweet and hilarious, the events were well scheduled and worth attendance, and they even have a child care center, allowing the adults to play in the casinos or party at the bars.
