This was our first cruise. Overall it was a pleasant experience even though we have nothing to compare it too except all inclusive resort vacations. They had many activities to choose from. We got the cheapest room and we would definitely upgrade next time....we had a very tiny room and no window. There was no clock in the room and with no window, we had not concept of time. The food was not that great. We thought the buffets did not have many options and overall the quality and taste just weren't that great and believe me...I'm not picky! I certainly didn't go hungry though either. We ate in both main dinning rooms which was just okay. They are certainly a very friendly staff. We did not try the dining choices that charged extra. I don't think this is right. When we go to an all-inclusive resort on an island, they don't charge extra for the varieties of restaurants. Overall it was a pain having to show your room card every time you wanted a soda or to have to use it and sign for alcoholic beverages. They should have wrist bands or something for soda and offer an alcoholic package. The private island Grand Stirrup Cay was excellent...the best part!!

Doors - restrooms etc are not marked well. When we first got there we had a very hard time finding a bathroom to change into our swimmings suits since our room was ready yet.
