This cruise was amazing! We had a group of 20 and everyone absolutely loved it. There were 6,240 guest on board. The ship only felt crowded at the buffet and elevators which was the same I had experience on all other cruises. The longest wait for an elevator was 5 minutes. There were so many other free dining options that we barely ate at the buffet anyway. There were always plenty of chairs available by the pool. The shows were all excellent. You must reserve the shows before you leave. There was so much to do and we enjoyed all of it. The cruise Director Alan Brooks was wonderul. His shows were great and he just brought so much fun to all the guests. Captain Johnny even rode his Harley around the ship.

The food was excellent. There was not one dish that I did not enjoy the entire cruise. I had read reviews with complaints about the food. Maybe those Cruisers were just picky because no one in my group experienced anything but the best. There were a lot of low calorie selections all throughout the ship including the main dining room. Tons of different specialty resturants. We ate at Chops and Rita's Cantina. Both worth every penny. Room service was great.

We had a balcony located on deck 12. Tons of storage space. More then I had experience on other cruises. Room size seemed comparable to all of ther cruise ship balconies. The bed was the most comfortable I had experience and basically a king size bed. The bathroom was your typical cruise ship bathroom but the shower had glass doors that closed together. I liked that better then just the shower curtain. Tons of storage in the bathroom as well.

So many onboard activities to do. There was zip lining, miniture golf, ping pong tables, H2O zone for the kids with a whirl pool, ice skating, rock climbing and even a carousel onboard. There were different events going on all day. Different dance classes, tons of fitness classes, jewelry making, cupcake decorating, bingo, parades, parties, etc... There had ladies night out 2 for 1 specials. There were so many, I can't remember them all.

Haiti was so beautiful. I wished I would have zip lined. All the guests I spoke to really enjoyed the zip line. The beaches were nice. Water was beautiful and the lunch was good. We went to an all inclusive resort booked through Jamaicaforaday.com in Jamaica. It was really nice. We just hung by the beach and pool with our tropical drinks. Lunch was included as well. My family did the zip lining in Jamaica and really loved it. Cozumel was our favorite. We snorkeled at Chankanubb park. There were so many colorful fish of all sizes. We even saw a star fish and a sting ray. They also have the swim with the dolphins there that everyone said they really enjoyed.
