Review Summary

Since this was our first cruise we weren't sure what to expect, but it was more amazing than we could have imagined. The ship was beautiful and very well kept. There was always something to do and there was no lack of food any time of the day or night (24 hour room service). The entertainment each night was top notch. The staff and crew were the best part. We actually felt like we were leaving good friends when the cruise was over. The staff is professional, polite, very friendly, and go way above and beyond the call of duty to make your trip the best it can be. We really enjoyed the many different options of things to do: trivia games, scavenger hunts, working out, piano bar, movies, relaxing by the pool, playing scrabble, checking out the library, sending an email home, watching karaoke, dance lessons, disco, not to mention eating, eating and eating. The service in the Great Gatsby dining room is the best and we looked forward to dinner each night. Our waiter and assistant waiter were fantastic and quickly learned everyone's names and what little extra things we liked (like passion fruit juice) and made sure we had them every night. We had quite a few food allergies at our table, but that was never a problem and the staff went out of their way to accommodate us. Overall the BEST vacation we've ever taken!!

Beach is nice. Be warned...the vendors are quite aggressive at getting you to buy things.

Pros: Definitely the people--crew and staff.

Cons: That we didn't book for a longer cruise!
