Very friendly and helpful crew! The dining room menu was excellent.  Very nice selection and variety. We opted for 'anytime' dining and we loved having flexibility with the time of our dinner and also being able to choose if we wanted to share a table, or have a romantic dinner for two. I loved the buffet on the Lido deck! Other cruise lines have more of a 'food court' style buffet where you put in your order, they make it and give it to you. I loved being able to actually choose the pieces of food you want to eat. We came away feeling like we had when we celebrated our honeymoon - reconnected, refreshed and in love! 

Cabin / Stateroom
The only annoyance was the additional/optional bunk beds. Getting into and out of bed you had to crouch so your head/shoulder didn't bump into it. Aside from this, I prefer they layout to other cruise lines.

Their "Bus" system is excellent. You can travel around the island for 4.5 hours and only pay $5. Excellent way to view the sites. I used google to map out our bus routes and it worked perfectly.

Sometimes it is extremely windy and the tender boats take longer to transport everyone.


Anytime dining is awesome! If you want only a table for two, we found we had to wait no more than 15 minutes. They gave you a beeper that let you know when your table was ready, so we brought our e-readers, and sat in the library until our buzzer went. Very convenient.
