Our Cruise director, Mitch, was fantastic. He's the kind of guy who makes you feel like you're best friends even though you've just met. There was a comedian we didn't really care for, but overall the entertainment was fantastic, especially the ice show and the Love and Marriage game show. The sport's deck, pools, and the other events around the ship were great. Nothing had an unreasonable line or was overly crowded. As for the food, while we could nit-pick a few things, there is no question that the food is still way above what you would get at home (and WAY above any Carnival cruise). 

 

Overall, we were never bored or hungry whether at sea or at port. The only real complaint I have is regarding the sales expert on board - He had several lectures on buying jewelry at the different ports and while they were actually interesting and good tips, he took forever to give out the special coupons promised for staying for the lecture. He could have very easily just handed them out as people walked out the door and let the people who actually had more in depth questions for him stay behind without feeling the need to be rushed by those who had others things to do.

 

Oh! and if you are wanting to visit the Margaritaville's in the different ports, the one in Cozumel is super expensive compared to the one in Georgetown and Falmouth (although it does have a trampoline out in the ocean which is pretty cool). Also the shopping in Cozumel is harder to get to while you can walk to all the shops in the other 2 ports.

I personally love interior rooms because they are completely dark while sleeping so there is no morning light to wake you up (especially if you stayed up way too late and want to sleep in).

Ship Tip

If you're going to order two entrees, make sure you order them at the same time other wise you won't have the opportunity to order more (though I think that goes for most cruise ships).

Also the buffet probably has the best breakfast options.

Make sure to book your transporation to the ship as early as possible, we had a hard time finding any availabilities let alone a good price.

Either shop or do an excursion, not both.

Get rum cake! Tortuga rum cake tastes best

Everyone is super friendly, but make sure to check for the best price elsewhere before buying. They sell a lot of the same items at different shops with drastically different prices.
