Our first cruise.

Sail Date: May 11, 2014

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

This was our first cruise experience. We had heard great things about taking a cruise. We had two days "at sea" with 15 foot waves. We had no problems with sea sickness but their was not enough to do on board to entertain when the weather was cloudy and rainy. I did not expect to be bored, and we were. The top decks were closed because of high winds and not enough chairs by the pools to accomodate everyone. That aside, the room stewards were great. Breakfast and lunch buffets were above average with lot's of variety. Dinner was special in the dining room, chef prepared and yummy. Could have more vegetarian choices.Over all we enjoyed the cruise, we might check out a different cruise line, one that has more activities. I want to be active and entertained .

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
Dining staff were wonderful we were at table 438. Head waiter and staff super.
Shows were great. Well done.
Onboard Activities
Not enough to do on "at sea" days.
Destinations and Excursions
Enjoyed excursions of zipline and Turtle farm.Jamaica was depressing outside shopping area at dock.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had an inside cabin. Which was quiet and fine. We do want to try a balcony next time.


Zipline on Labadee was fun, my first time! I would have gone again if it were not so expensive. If you like sea turtles go to the turtle farm.
