Fun cruise. The Crystal caving in Belize was fun. Boss Underwater made almost everyone who did it nauseated....just an FYI.  Get to the port early and pay the extra money when you board the ship to book a lounge chair or cabana at Vibe Beach Club. No Pool there, but 2 hot tubs and a cool down rain showers. NEVER crowded, wonderful attention. It holds 60 people. Most times I never counted over 10. Beats the rat race down by the main hot tubs and pool. Food /service in the main dinning rooms was amazing. I wouldn't waste money on speciality restaurants unless it was a free package. Casino machines were very stingy with $ returns. Don't plan on getting rich. Overall, it was a fun ship with great food and ports. (They could use a new pastry chef...desserts were meh..looked pretty but disappointing in taste)

Huge balcony for a cruise ship. But since we spent most of our time in our cabana at Vibe, it was underused.

Ship Tip

Taste and Savor were much nicer than Tropicana for meals...same menu.
Check out the glass "windows" you can stand on on deck 8 forward by The Waterfront. They're made to look cracked, and you can look down into the ocean.
