Nice ship. Food good. Did NOT get adjoining room with friends, AS PROMISED, Rooms 624/626 (they got 625 instead, the other side of the ship) Anytime dining was a problem, difficult to get table for four without long wait. Service in dining room was excellent (once we got in). Never got to Cayman Islands, due to SLOW tenders (water was choppy). Music at the pool area was often EXTREMELY LOUD ROCK, not necessarily ideal for older guests, which were in the majority. Cruise is supposed to be relaxing! Paid for, and never got, Hop on/ hop off bus in Cartagena-driver refused our voucher from !! Expect refund.
