Review summary

We were so looking forward to this cruise and had such high expectation!  They were all met.  We did not walk away disappointed.  Only thing was the 2 sick people who had to be taken to hospitals, this made unexpected stops and we had to miss one of our destinations, but that is something that just can't be helped.  (We hope they are doing well now) We will just have to do the cruise again to go to that island another time.  Food was excellent, the ports we went to were great and we enjoyed our excursions. Dunns River Falls in Falmouth, Jamaica was great but I would not recommend the tubing experience part.  I would choose one of the other Dunns River Falls excursions. Staff on board the ship were great. Very nice, helpful and professional.  Shows on the ship were great.  They had plenty to keep you busy through out the day if you wanted to or if you just wanted to do nothing that was nice too.  We dined at Chops the first night and it was delicious.  The service was fantastic.  We so much enjoyed our trip and look forward to booking again.

We did the Sting Ray experience. It was a nice excursion. My husband really enjoyed the sting rays but I on the other hand was a little nervous but still had fun.

Cozumel, Mexico

Fantastic. We did the Manatee experience. We just loved it and Cozumel is beautiful
