Review summary

ship just came from dry dock renovations, however not all areas were complete.  Dining room service was average, food barely warm. Windjammer café food was above average. Last night of cruise bartender assigned to Coral Theatre didn't know how to make the drink of the day. Stop at Coco Cay was very relaxing; BBQ was above average. Onboard seminar given by Ellie regarding how to shop for diamonds & tanzanite was extremely helpful. The '70's show was very interactive and fun however it would've been nice if passengers could take pictures with the crew that participated in the event before they left the event. Sports supervisor for rock wall was extremely helpful with coaching the passengers in order for them to have a successful climb.

be prepared to deal with aggressive sales associates in jewelry stores. Need to bargain with them or walk away as there are plenty of other stores.

Key West, Florida
