This was our 26th cruise. We have been on several different lines. Royal Carribean and Celebrity are our favorites. This ship is absolutely spotless and the crew just wonderful. The food was very good and a huge variety to choose from. The destinations were nice but, except for Mexico, not representative the the real condition of the country. The ports are 'disneyfied'. Safe and strile.

My only complaint is the charges every time you turn around, and drink prices are the highest in the industry. The drink packages are absurd. Speciality restaurants were over priced. Art sales are still a ripoff as they have been for years.

The captain rerouted the cruise to avoid bad weather and was a very smart thing to do. Weather was excellent due to his decision.

The cruise director his second were loud and fast talking. The stage show "Cats" was long and boring and the theater was half empty after intermission.

We will be back but on a different ship.

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
Cozumel, Mexico
Good food, fun shopping, and good bargaining.
Falmouth, Jamaica
Take the time to walk into the village. Folks are very polite but a bit aggressive. Need meds, this is the place to shop. Nice photo ops. See the real third world up close.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
Good local art from vendors. Very polite.


Take fewer clothes. Sneak in wine or liquor prices are way to high. Sadly the 'formal nite' ain't what it used to be.
