A lovely ship, with nice amenities such as movies under the stars and during the day, several pools with activities at each, very good entertainment, comedy shows a hypnotist, zumba classes......

However, not enough to do for a younger crowd day during the day.... somewhat quiet. the mini golf was almost unplayable, no organized basketball games, small gym... trivia, bingo and dance lessons during the day not enough for a younger crowd.

Any time dining is a free for all.. you are not allowed to make reservations between 6:00 - 7:30 but you must show up and get a beeper. Creates stress on a vacation and a feeling of being " with the masses " the matre d actually has words with you if you question the policy... why not let the passengers make reservations for the time they do want to eat? if you do not then you stand in line and receive a beeper.

The first 45 days of the cruise the food was barely tolerable but i believe they wanted to leave you with a fond memory and the last 3 days very good....

The buffet was average at best, and the availability of snacks limited...

Very nice everything worked properly and we were upgraded free to a lovely balcony

Well run by the staff who was very entertaining, but limited.... day time needed more fun activities for the younger crowd....

We loved the a.t.v in cozumel, great adventure and accessible for all ages....

Overall great fun, but have enjoyed the Royal Caribbean ships more.... more accessible snacks/light food during night and day, more activities parades, quest, ice skating etc..
