Cruise was good. Very windy first couple of days. Weather was good, no rain just sun :) Room was OK. Neat and clean. Had a Promenade view. Windows were foggy. Buffet in Windjammer Cafe was disappointing. Food was just OK. Could really get the same food in any cafeteria. However, the main dining room food was excellent. Service in dining room was outstanding. One thing, we chose the "My time dining" option. Its very misleading. You have to still make reservations to dine at the time you want. Grab your time slot as soon as you get on board otherwise you will have only 830pm and after to choose from. Did the Zip line in Labadee, Haiti. What a thrill! Would do it again. All in all, was a fun cruise, good to get away and enjoy fun in the sun.
