An Excellent Vacation!

Sail Date: March 14, 2008

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

Ship was extremely clean, staff extremely friendly. Ship is very colorful. Always great poolside bands during the day. Drinks are pricey and they try to sell you the souviner glasses. You have to specify if you don't want them. Great deal on bucket of beer. Many small children on board. I did not like the fact that you could not wear "dress shorts" into the restaurants, however, jeans (holey jeans at that) were okay. I thought freestyle meant just that. wrong! Night shows were very good, however, the ship was lacking in good dancing music. There was none. After shows the ship had no activity except for casino.

Pros: Freestyle cruising, making dinner reservations as our schedule allowed

Cons: Not being allowed to wear "dress" or "casual" shorts to restaurants....nightlife...

Did the Zip Line which was great fun! RainForest is a must see!
