Fabulous!!

Sail Date: July 16, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was unbelievable! It was my first cruise and everything I had hoped for in terms of quality of accomodations, activities and staff exceeded my expectations.

Pros: The entire ship's layout and amenities

Cons: Waiting for elevators

Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
We did the kayak excursion and I didn't care for stopping at a beach area to be aggressively pursued by native selling products placed on beach blankets.
Cozumel, Mexico
Tulum/Xhe-Ha Excursion. Loved the Mayan Ruins. Only had 1hr, 15 minutes for the aquarium. Too much time spend traveling on the tender to/from the ship and the bus ride. In retrospect, should have just done 1excursion.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Nautilus submarine was not a true "submarine"; however the views of the reef were spectacular. Do not advertize this excursion as a submarine. The Land excursion was way too rushed; 10 minute stop here, 30 minutes there.
Don't Miss: Shopping!

Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Must see: Dunn's River Falls......was fantastic. Dolphin's Cove........beach/relaxation area was too small. Nothing to do if not paying for the interaction with Dophins.
