Cabin: GTY

Only one swimming pool on board, which was much too small, for that many passengers. One could only stand in one place in the pool. Not enough lounge chairs around the pool area. The shows were extra ordinary, great. on stage! Lounge areas were too small for side shows. We did not like that we had to pay to eat where there was a magic show. This show should have been on stage one night.  The Atruim did not have enough seating for different events held there. The service was wonderful. Some of the food (meats) could be improved. Many were tough to eat.  The cafeteria style dining was very good, especially on lobster night. More seating needed on deck 16 for late functions. The firework up there were very nice. I would have like at least one dress up night. Most of the families and younger people, wore shorts, day and night. Don't pack more than three sets of sports wear for the entire week. The many children on board were taken care of with many activities, and they even put on a show for us on stage which was adorable. I would recommend the Getaway for the under 50 crowd. We liked the free style dining.

Ship Quality
Great is there was a bigger pool, more lounge chairs, and Atrium chairs
Food and Dining
Most of the meet was tough, except the ribs and prime rib.Lobster tail small but tasty. Specialty restaurant food was not as good as the cafeteria's except for the prime rib ad ribs.
Service and Staff
The service everywhere was above par. However, employees that had heavy accents were difficult to understand.
Entertainment Exceptionally good entertainment. Burn the Floor Dancers were great.
Children's Programs
They had plenty for all the children to do.
Onboard Activities
Stage shows were great. Lounges, atrrum, Pool area, too small. Not enough seating.

Cabin / Stateroom

Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Great beach. Took water taxi to get there,.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas Good shopping
Nassau, Bahamas Gov't notice re: crime up. We did not get off the ship here.


We liked free style dinning to eat when we wanted to, and with whomever. The cafeteria was easy to use ,good The special restaurants, that you had to pay extra for, were wasted spaces. They could have made the atrium seating & lounges bigger instead. Very clean ship. Best for under 50
