Absolutely wonderful cruise!

Sail Date: January 17, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was twice as big as the previous I had cruised on, and the whole thing was just majestic! Only bad part was that my bed kind of vibrated a lot! Not sure what that was from, it would stop from time to time. Plenty of activities, and never went hungry, food galore! We hung out in our room on the second day of our cruise because of NFL playoffs, and ordered room service (and missed formal night, which we hated!) Loved Grand Caymans, and our excursion there! Jamaica kind of freaked me out though--we hadn't booked an excursion there and planned on just hanging at the Island Village, and Margaritaville---but my son insisted he wanted to go do something else, so we got a driver that wouldn't leave us alone as soon as we got to the parking lot at Port, he took us to Dunn's river falls, which was spectacular! but the people insisted you had to rent shoes to walk the falls for $7, my husband and daughter decided they didn't want to walk them , when we met back up they said some man came and jerked my daughters' camera from her wrist and started taking pictures of them, and in turn told them that is how he makes his living, and of course wanted money, so my daughter finally jerked the camera back away, and my husband gave him a couple of dollars and he went away. Then after completing and returning our shoes, were practicly mugged in this small souviener villiage of sorts, we then had our driver take us back to Island village, where we spent the rest of the day. We also passed some beggers as we were reporting back to the ship that were on the other side of the fence, later from our balcony on the ship, we witnessed the police chase these men into the water and throw ROCKS at them! Also beware of these people that throw necklaces from beyond the fence, and ask you to get it! Other than that experience, It was a beautiful country, just a little scary! lol

Pros: The weather was better than I thought it could be, and the ship was outstanding.

Cons: The last day at sea was windy and cold. And Jamaica Kind of scary.
