First cruise of many to come I hope! My expectations were repeatedly exceeded. The spa was AMAZING. Garcia and Mayleen were just worth every single penny. (Pedi and Massage) Rogelio and Yoga were our servers in the Jubilee Dining Room, 815pm seating, table 315... again, AMAZING. They were courteous, professional, called me by name (Miss Katie) every night and remembered by preferences... they were anticipating every single thing by day 3... how pampered!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU... planning my next one now!

Salty, but very good! Lunch was buffet style and my least favorite, but still, very good- Breakfast was yummy. And dinner was way beyond expectations... they have 1 stable menu and another that changes every night, so loads of selections and variety... from souffl├ęs to shark, to frog legs and comfort style mac & cheese... the steak was a favorite of mine... as was the crab cake... if you like lobster, your elegant night is lobster and shrimp... Downside, I was sodium sensitive and didn't know it... ended up with severely swollen feet and ankles and required a saline drip, and loads of meds to stop vomiting from the dehydration... no, I didn't over drink... I ate onboard, was in sun and drank water... just not enough apparently... this is very rare; I was just affected by it... PS- free room service 24 hrs. from pb & j to steaks...

Very comfortable, mattress and pillows are surprisingly very nice... I would have loved a larger bathroom, but hey, who wouldn't! :) The water is very hot and a decent pressure. Again, both were nice surprises that exceeded expectations.

HUGE variety no matter your age/gender... had more fun than ever expected... LOVED the Serenity Deck on Lido... 21 and over only... so quiet and nice!

Book off the boat for half the price... companies (legit) are waiting at the port to load vans and go on excursions... MUCH cheaper... our group had a blast! Also, the cruise line very heavily recommends certain stores to shop in. I heard from our guide that the liner gets 42% kickback on all purchases... don't know if it is true, but that's what they told us.

Great Trip!!! I am planning a new one now for next year! Great liquor prices onboard!
