Food and Dining
Free Style Dining is a definate plus. The longest wait time I experienced was 20 minutes. Pagers are used and work anywhere on the ship so you can go have a drink or play some slots while waiting. Steak house was great. Two of the best meals I had were in one of the main dining rooms (Azure). Italian and Japanese resturants were only so-so. Staff was very attentive.
Shows were great. Try not to miss any of them.
Ship Quality
Ship was easy to get around on. More pools and a larger pool area would be appreciated. Showroom was very comfortable with no bad seats.
Cabin / Stateroom
Mini Suite was very comfortable and close to the pool and buffet. Only complaint was that the toilet in the adjacent cabin could be heard when flushed.
Service and Staff
The most friendly staff ever encountered on a cruise. The cabin steward, Ador, was the best. Although tips are added on automatically I was compelled to give the steward an additional tip for his great service and concern that we were having a great time.
St. John's, Antigua
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Don't forget to shop. That's why they stop here.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
If you want a lounge chair be on one of the first tenders to the island. They go early.
