Although the family had a great time, and that is what is most important, we found this cruise to be over priced. This was my 9th cruise but first week long voyage and expected more from such a large ship. I was disappointed with the small living quarters including shower and bathroom with frosted windows that were not separated from the room. The food was below average on most nights and the Teppanyaki restaurant was over priced with little food. The quality of the on board entertainment was disappointing, especially the hypnotist and the Second City family performance. Blue Man Group was entertaining. Three days at sea were painful and wished they had a private island like the shorter cruises in which to visit

Onboard Activities
apart from the Nicolodeon characters, there was not much to rave about
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
fruit hardly ripe and desserts were bland. Service was good but tables were hardly stocked with essentials
Service and Staff
Genessis and Roy stood out and went out of their way to make the trip better
Only Blue Man Group was worth the time,
Children's Programs
enrolled but the three kids did not want to attend as they were not impressed
Destinations and Excursions
saved the trip. needed a private island as three days at sea were overwhelming
Cabin / Stateroom
our stweard made it comfortable, BAD smells, like musty odor, and bugs at times. Roy made nice animals out of towels. Room too small and bathroom not private
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Dolphin Cove was perfect. Beach a bit disappointing as it was very rocky and no sun in the afternoon to tan
George Town, Grand Cayman
Just walked around. Great shopping
Cozumel, Mexico
Playa Mia was amazing!! Best part of the trip!!
