We did my time dining and were fortunate enough to have the same servers all week. LOVED them.  Out of 17 cruises they are my favorites since 2007! Igor and Emma.  There is plenty to do, the flow rider- even if your not interested in trying it just watching it is great fun.  The rock wall is a long wait and a fast climb but a fun thing to do. Lots of sports all they time. Golf course is funny with all the curves. Activites to many to name!  We loved the Elton John impersonator even though my husband does not like elton john this was his favorite also.  The adult game shows were hiliarious!  I suggest getting involved with these games and having fun with it!  The windjammer serves the same food over and over so it is boring to me.  The Cafe has the same sandwiches and desserts the entire week which is BORING also.  I suggest going to deck 3 for bkst and lunch because they cook it to order and it taste so much better than the windjammer.  My biggest complaint is the food.  Its nothing to brag about.  No better than Carnival or Princess. lunch meat every where. YUCK

Cabin / Stateroom
this room is noisy with creaking noises due to the assembly fo the ship per our stateroom attendant. Its not bad if we were going slow but any amount of waves and it makes noise

Senior Frogs saved the day. We booked only for the BioBay Kayak tour and could not get it.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
LOVE ziplining and the airport- grab a taxi and pay them directly its cheaper and you can go to the Sunset beach bar to watch the planes land afterwards.
Basseterre, St. Kitts
