Beautiful mega ship with excellent signage which made it very easy to find ones way around while on board. The cruise ports of Labadee Haiti and Falmouth Jamaica were as expected. Labadee has some nice beaches with some beautiful views but not a whole lot else outside the immediate area. Falmouth has A nice enclosed shopping area right off the pier with good prices for  the usual cruise gifts/souveniers. It has no beaches in the immediate vicinity and once outside the fenced enclosure near the ship is a very poor area of dilapidated shops and merchants and  a security force that is lacking. You are definetely on your own once outside the enclosed area. The main attraction is definetely the ship and it did not dissapoint. My wife is disabled an we booked a handicap accessible room which was spacoius and well equipped overlooking the boardwalk. Very different view from the balcony as we were able to see the boardwalk,ocean and zip liners. It was never a problem to find lounge chairs on the deck and with all the passengers on board it never seemed overly congested. As a matter  of fact you could always find a peaceful area in numerous places on the ship at any time if desired. The only traffic jam would be near the elevators after shows or special events and this is expected and occurs on most all ships. The numerous shows and parades were elaborate and first class. We used my time dining and made all reservations prior to the cruise and it all went as planned. All in all a great very smooth cruising giant ship. Its going to be a little hard going back to a smaller ship after you've sailed on this monster!!!!
