Overall cruise experience was okay. Nothing extraordinary about it. Not too many things to do on ship for younger crowd except for rock climbing, surfing, and the usual pool wading.

The food was okay. Could've been one hundred times better. Didn't get a chance to order room service because the menu was so so so limited...down to one page total for all foods which i think is rediculous. Not a variety of food to choose from for those days at sea. Options (that are free) include your buffet, which out of ten stars I give it a four, the coffee shop, and a pizza place....J.Rockets is good, but you'll have to pay.

Stateroom was nice...nothing great nothing terrible about it

Not enough onboard activities. EVERYTHING IS PACKED. Dance class is so packed you'll be stepping on someone or getting stepped on. Scrapbooking class is limited to 25 people and is not offered often enough!!!! The night clubs are totally lame and EMPTY! You'll get about 10-20 people on a good night. Oh and the DJ is terrible! The surf pool is so packed you have to wait at least 15-20 minutes before you get a chance to try it and when you do it's usually over in ten seconds at most...and NO you don't get to try again unless you stand in line all over again.

Stay away from tree top excursion in St. Maarten! It's expensive for one, two-you go in groups of almost sixty, and three it'll take 3-4 hours, but not because the excursion takes long, but because you have to wait for your group of 60 to finish the excursion!!!! Crazy waste of time that could've been done in maybe an hour and a half. You'll spend most of your time here so don't plan on having too much time for the beautiful beaches. I say save your money and go to the beach!

If I could do it over again I'd do a ship with a crowd that's a little younger..not immature younger. This cruise is meant for 55+.
