Great staff, large room. Loved being on Deck 6, Lower promenade. Rough water made swimming in pool difficult at times and was cancelled once. Half Moon Cay was cold water and a wasted of time to go on shore. St Lucia was a dud unless you want to snorkel skip tours. Mostly shoppping stops. Barbados with photographer was great. My husband had difficulty with meals as spicy unless you want to eat steak every night. He thought 14 days was long. i didn;t. We have had many cruises and am Mariner 3 star so don't sweat the small stuff. Go to enjoy and keep an open mind. The ship is going to be spruced up soon and the new lanais on deck 6 with own chairs on deck look very nice. We just had a window but so close to walk outside that I didn't mind.

lines at buffet. especially when they close one side for staff only dinner. slow at omelets and also lunch. Lido pool had salmon and chicken all afternoon. Never a problem getting a lounge chair.
