This was our first cruise and many friends had told us how great cruising was but none had been on this particular cruise. I am big on using the internet to research places and had downloaded an app (Ship Mate) to track the ships progress. I paid for the top WiFi package so I could access the internet on 2 devices. Internet access was not available in our state room and spotty on the upper decks. Couldn't use the app or research our excursion destinations. Very frustrating. Also, couldn't smoke a cigar anywhere but the starboard side of the upper two decks and it was too windy in the evenings.
We enjoyed the excursions and met some great people but the ship was crowded and relaxing lounge chairs were hard to find. IF we cruise again we will likely try another cruise line or a larger ship.

Limited places to smoke a cigar and NO ONE had a cigar cutter...not the shop that sold cigars or any of the bars. Bring your own!
