The ship is nice. Our room and room steward were wonderful. The balcony and bathroom were spacious. The buffet food was quite good for breakfast and lunch (we did not eat dinner there) and it was not too congested. Complimentary dining was good one meal and the second meal wasn't quite as good. Dinner music was too loud! Specialty restaurants were quite good. Burn the Floor and Legally Blond were both excellent entertainment. Theatre is comfortable and has good viewing. Swimming pool area and fitness center way too small for the number of people. Adult area on the back of the ship is pleasant although a small pool would be nice. Mojito Bar and bartender was a plus. Turtle Cove snorkel trip in St. Thomas was a bust! Took way too long to get in the water then there was nothing to see. The Sail and Swim  in St. Martin was much better. Too many children allowed to run the halls at night!!! Too many children allowed to run the dance floor in the main dining room including on the musicians stage. I know I rambled but I just went through my list.
