Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
There was a good selection each night. The quality was OK. The service was excellent.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
We were a little dissapointed with the times available for the ice skating and inline skating arenas. The rock climbing wall also had limited times available to enjoy.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
The staff was excellent. The kids club however should not close during the day @ all. The mid day closings made it difficult to schedule spa appointments.

Dunns River Falls is a must see!!! The natives however were about as pushy as you can get. One went as far as giving my kids a wooden turtle and said to my 8 yr. old it was free. Then turned to me and insited I give him $20.00. To make a long story short, he didn't get the $20.00.... This made the trip to the falls something to talk about other than the falls.
Don't Miss: Dunns River Falls

Cozumel, Mexico

This port was difficult to get out of. It was a small shopping area which was average.
Don't Miss: Kids got their hair braided.... They loved it.
