Having been in dry dock to be refurbished for a month, I don't think it was ready to accept guests.  We had no hot water for showers for 3 1/2 days.  Apparently everyone on floors 6 thru 10 were you might say in the same boat.  The fabulous new water slide and kids pool were not ready for 2 days.  I don't think the hot tubs were ready for 1 1/2 days.  Our group went to two different bars and I don't think they could have been using anything more than 1/2 jiggers.  Had there not been ice in a glass, a Bailey's on the rocks could not have measured more than 1/2 inch of liquid.  It was a joke except for the price.  And as far as compensation for not having hot water for 3 1/2 days, a 15% discount was offered on a future cruise IF taken within the next year.  Another joke.

Cabin / Stateroom
The gentleman (Clemente) taking care of our room was outstanding.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Embarkation was a pain but disembarkation was outstanding.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Service and Staff
Mohamed and Nicoletta were excellent waiters in the main dining room. Great service and great personalities. Also the young lady from South Africa in the Chops Grille was just awesome. Clemente was the greatest in taking care of our cabin.
Food and Dining
Galveston, Texas
Lunch at Fisherman's Wharf is a must prior to boarding!
Falmouth, Jamaica
The shopping area just off the ship was really nice and secure.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Sad to say that due to high winds we were not able to stop at George Town.
Cozumel, Mexico
Cozumel was a little chaotic in that there must have been 5 or 6 ships there at the same time.
