We sailed on May 25th and had a fabulous time. I have read the other reviews of this ship and don't understand how other people could have such negative experiences. Everything was positive for us.Room - We had a balcony room which was very large with lots of storage space. The bathroom had a hairdryer but I brought my own and enjoyed sitting at the vanity table while doing my hair and make up. There was always hot water in the shower and great water pressure. Our room steward was extremely friendly and cleaned the room two times a day. Ship - The ship was beautiful, clean and full of a friendly crew. There were many activities throughout the day and we loved getting the daily activity newsletter and picking out what we wanted to do for the day (when we weren't on excursions or sitting on the balcony). The tv shows and movies could have been better, but you don't really take a cruise to sit in your room and watch tv, do you?Food - Seven Seas and Four Seasons are the main dining rooms and they were average to very good. There were special menus every night. Do not miss the President's menu. That is the best. Also, on formal night, they serve lobster tail, don't miss that. We were dressed resort casual that night and they let us in. So, if you don't dress up for formal night, just look nice and they'll let you in. Don't forget you can order more than one entree at each meal as well. Pacific Heights has no charge and is healthy and good. We didn't do any of the surcharge restaurants because we were fine with the others. The chocoholic buffet looked good, but it was the same stuff repeating over and over so it really wasn't that impressive. There was a frozen yogurt/ice cream bar during the day that we enjoyed and decent pizza for lunch at Pacific Heights. The room service menu is limited but they are prompt. Couldn't order past midnight on our last night though.Service - We had excellent service in every restaurant and at every bar and by the pool.Excursions - In Grand Cayman we took a taxi ($3/pp each way) to Seven Mile Beach and then paid $6/pp to get in. We just relaxed. In Roatan, it rained, so we stayed on the ship. Those who went to Tapayana beach got bitten up by sand fleas. In Belize, we did the cave tubing, which was awesome. It was limited, so if you really want to do this, sign up as soon as you board the boat. It sold out quickly and a lot of people were disappointed. Cozumel - we listened to a one-hour time share presentation at El Cid. There was a guy right there on the sidewalk who talked us into it. In exchange for listening, we got a free Mexican lunch and got to use their beautiful facilities for the day. They are on the beach where there is a sunken plane (from the movie Live and Let Die), you can snorkel over. This was a good deal if you're into listening to time share sells for something in exchange. (We originally had a rental car lined up but it fell through).Entertainment - loved the comedienne Mary Jane Hooper and the singer Jane Powell. Do not miss them. The Power of Two was pretty good as was Cirque Pan. Good music in all the venues. The cruise director, Paul, is hilarious.Have a great time, don't see how you couldn't.Shane from Chicago, IL
