Review summary

Just way too many people. By day three, I just wanted to go home to get away from the crowds. By day four, it really seems like a lot of other passengers were becoming very rude. It was so crowded, we were never able to see nor touch the water in the pools. On the last day, we tried to get some outdoor chairs on the deck above the pool, and every time we stood up to use the restroom or anything, someone else would sit in our chairs - even with out belongings still on the chairs. The only way to go to the pool is to get there right at 7am and then stay there until you are done. We just did not want to get up that early to try to get a chair on that deck.

Onboard Activities

There were plenty of onboard activities - however, it seemed like every square inch of every deck was a party floor - it was all way too loud and crowded for me to enjoy.

They made animals out of the towels every day and left them in our stateroom.

Ship tip

There are too many people on this ship to find a quiet place. Even in our stateroom, we could hear people above and around us moving things around and talking.

This was by far the best part of the trip for me. They catered to us on the island. We went snorkeling and it was fabulous - you MUST snorkel here. This was the only piece of the trip that made the whole trip worth it to me.
