I am 60 and my wife is 55, the youngest age group on the ship. Embarkation and disembarking were handled very well. Food was mostly medicore. Service was very good - except for language barrier (their English was limited). Entertainment - not Las Vegas but good. This relatively small ship did not handle the gale winds and 20-foot waves very well. Our aft oceanview cabin on the main deck was clean and attractive. However a word of warning for those taking aft cabins - when we arrived at Georgetown, Grand Cayman, the weather was still bad and the captain could not anchor the ship and so he had to use the engines to keep us from going aground during our entire day there. The noise was continuous starting at 6:30 am (waking us up) and disturbing us the whole day.
