Overall excellent cruise. The food was not as good as I anticipated. I wanted to see more seafood (i.e. crab legs, lobsters, etc), but they did have seafood offered at every meal. My cabin attendant was exceptional....Roxanne from Trinidad and Tobago, very personable, not just working for a tip. The guest relations person we mostly dealt with Cameron was very knowledgeable and personable as well. The ship has something for EVERYONE. If you don't have a good time it's your fault. I would strongly recommend to reserve your excursions on line. Many of the excursions were booked up the first day because so many people took care of it on line. Use taxis at your destinations and bargain on the prices. They can get you to a lot more places much cheaper than the tours, but you have to get out there early. I recommend for any stops in Cozumel to contact Victor Delgado,, Island Tours, phone 872-3922, cell 044 987 878 7778, he does an excellent job, with drinks included (with or without alcohol). Although our cruise was packed we never had to wait for any of the activities, passengers were very courteous. Get to the basketball court, golf simulator early. One other thing, whenever they have parades get to those early especially if you have kids they fill up fast and it's hard to see. Anyway awesome cruise, the ship was breathtaking, bring your swimsuits, a good attitude and leave all your worries behind. ENJOY YOURSELF.
