We had a great time on the cruise, it started off a bit slow until we got into the swing of things. Being our first cruise, we weren't sure how things worked. We missed out on meeting the captain for cocktails, that was disappointing. We didn't realize that deck 5 was the main deck until about the 3rd day. But once we met some people they helped us out a bit.
We were disappointed that we only got to stay at Coco Cay for about 2 hrs because we had to leave cause of weather. So we didn't get to do anything there but shop and lay in a hammock before we were told to leave. Then the medi evacs happened so we couldn't go to St. Thomas that was a downer. We really wanted to go there. San Juan we almost got mugged, we had two guys following us we had to ditch them. It was pouring rain and we got soaked and just ran back to the ship. Then another med evac. Then St. Maarten was great a little over cast, but we were able to get out and shop. Then another med evac 4 in all. So I was not impressed with the choice of going to San Juan, I think it was too high crime to bring tourists to if the chances you could be mugged.
