First time cruise. Entire family went on this cruise(our children are adult age 21-23) We really had a great time on this ship. The ship is one of the older in the fleet but was very nice. The food was good and there was a lot of fun activities onboard. The staff was very attentive and helpful. It was a very relaxing fun vacation, we all enjoyed ourselves very much. Learned a lesson to pack extra clothing (swim attire etc..) and must have personal items in our carry-ons as some of our luggage took several hours to get top our stateroom.

We ate three nights in the dining room and the food was very good, one night at the buffet and the food was good for buffet food. We had pizza late night after leaving the night clubs and it was very good. My wife even had pizza delivered to our room !!! Breakfast had a good variety and was good.

Stateroom was small but nice. The kids had 3 in their room next door and they were a little cramped. The service we received from the staff was excellent. If I remember correctly believe our service guys name was Jeanne and again he took very good care of us.I wish this ship had balconies, it would have been nice. We had an exterior room with a window. I recommend getting a room with a window. The beds were fine and I slept like a baby while on this cruise.

We all enjoyed the on board activities. The late night comedian shows were awesome, we laughed so hard it made my stomach hurt. There was always something going on the main deck during the day so we would sometimes just sit and enjoy the sun and watch the games etc.. We played mini golf, used the walking track and exercise areas.

Key West was a great place, make sure you go ashore in Key West. In Cozumel my daughter went on the beach bash and had a great time. The boys went on the mayan ruins tour and loved it. My wife and I went into town and if I had to do it again I would have went on the beach bash instead.

For our first cruise we had a great time and will definitely go again, in fact we are already planning another cruise for next year. The kids loved it and are begging to go again.
