We normally do all inclusives in the Carribean and this was the first time on a cruise for myself and my two daughters, ages 13 and 15 and it was the best experience ever for all of us. We got on the ship in Miami with no lines at all and getting on off the ship at ports was the same, we literally just walked with no lines and the one time there was a line it moved so swiftly we were in it for 10 minutes max. The staff was incredible so polite, helpful, and friendly from the cleaning crew, to waiters, housekeeping, everyone was just fabulous. And the food, all day long...we ate mostly at the buffet restaurant with food like roast turkey, roast beef, roast pork all in one day followed by fillet, pork, grille salmon and shrimp the next day, how can we not. They also had on a daily basis, fruits, pasta, and salads prepared as you ordered it, Indian and vegetarian food, deserts.  Breakfast was another feast on its own and snacks such as made to order crepes...made and served in between main meals. Entertainment-tons of stuff going on for all ages and likes 24/7 including movies on the outside deck.  JUST INCREDIBLE ALL AROUND.

Miami is Miami.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Hired our own private driver for the day, Richard Brook who took us to Dunns, Blue Hole, River tubing, Fern Gulley and a few hours at the beach with food and music.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Snorklling was okay
Cozumel, Mexico
CAREFUL** ATM in Cozumel charge you 13% plus bank fees. Hired a driver for 6 hours and went everywhere. Snorkeling was fabulous.


Bring your luggage on board so you can change the minute you get on as opposed to having to wait for it to arrive, We got on ship at 1pm, but our luggage did not arrive to our rooms until 5pm
