The customer supporting teams - stateroom, restaurant, cafeteria and refreshments were always courteous, helpful and thoughtfull.

The themes and activities were very well done, and had the guests lively involved.

The dining waiter team - second seating (08:30 PM), table 436 was expecially
good.  He provided expert service, entertainment and we felt that he was only
service the one table, although knowing her had several under his watch.

The time in Port for San Juan could have been longer, it seemed that the time was just barely enough to walk through old San Juan, and nothing more.

The BBQ lunch at Labadee did not really account for the sports/excursions that were starting around 12:00 (Noon) - we were on the Wave Runner excursion and by the time we reached the BBQ it was closed.
