Review summary

I have to say the cruise was relaxing and a great getaway. 

The staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. 

The entertainment was good but got old by the end of the cruise!

I was really disappointed that we were in the Carribean and could not enjoy the pools because they were colder than cold! The jacuzzi's weren't much better temperature wise that is if you could ever find a spot in one. 

The food really went down hill!! I love soup and the selections were horrible. When I go on a vacation I love to eat seafood, it was very scarce on the menu and were often combined with other fish which I can not eat due to an allergy. 

I really enjoyed the unlimited drink package. I normally do not drink but when I do I an very picky! Other than some of the fruity drinks which all had pineapple, I was happy drinking when I wanted to!! I am a water drinker and the water sucked!! They need to have a Spring water alternative!!! I wouldn't give Aquafina to my pets!! I had a birthday on my cruise and it was a pretty disappointing day! I had to pay for my dinner and almost had anaphylactic relation to a soup that had S almond in it and was not supposed to, thus I coughed through my dinner and could not enjoy it!
