Okay... This cruise was awesome and I was so satisfied with every aspect of it--- my stateroom, the staff, the food, to the entertainment.

Stateroom - Great. Way better than I expected for a small cruise room. Had a balcony, a huge bed, huge vanity & huge couch. Cleaned.. and I don't just mean "made the bed," I mean really cleaned up after me (since it tends to look like a tornado came through while I am getting ready); organized my flip flops & heels against the wall, placed any bags nicely on the sofa, untangled my hair dryer cord and put it on the corner of my vanity. And to top it off- made me cute little animals from the new towels every day.

Staff - Just fabulous. Every single person I encountered was so pleasant, esp. my stateroom man, Dwayne & my waiter, Nephtale, in the main dining room. But every one, even just staff members passing you in the hallway greet you with a nice smile and "hello"

Food - Freaking awesome. I am very weary about buffet-style dining in general, so I had low expectations for the Windjammer Cafe (where I mostly grabbed breakfast & lunch).. but it turned out to be more than great. There were endless selections of different food to choose from and literally all amazing. Also, I have a gluten allergy and was very worried about that, but there was SO much to choose from, it was not difficult at all, I didn't even have to think about it.

Entertainment - When they say there is something to do for everyone, they mean that literally. As far as nightlife, there are so many bars/lounges as well as a nightclub. Lots of contests, some poolside during the day, others throughout the evening.

Other - Great drinks, great pool, great happy island music, & the staff is super accommodating (especially in the middle of the night in the 24 hour cafe when you are making drunken special food requests and they still serve you with a smile!!) The gym was great too! So peaceful working out looking out into the ocean. Also, being in my mid 20's, traveling with my family, I was surprised to meet so many others around my age in the same situation! Made some great friends.
