We loved the ship so much that we have decided to go on the sister ship next summer in the Med, the Liberty of the Seas. The shows were fantastic and our daughter who is only just 2 was mesmerised by them. We usually ate in Windjammer at breakfast and lunch, then the main dining room (Leonardo's) in the evening. We never felt a need to pay the supplement for the other restaurants. Also, even though our girl is very well behaved, I didn't think it would be fair to any other guests if she did decide to play up when they had paid extra. The food was always lovely in the main dining room, with nice choices. Our waiter, Christopher, was great and one night he did a magic trick that amazed us all. My husband went on the rock climbing wall and the Flowrider and loved it. That is one of the reasons we are going on the Liberty next year. We also went skating but we were both rubbish, but it's great that we got to have a go.
The cruise ports were Cococay, St Thomas and meant to be St Maarten too, but due to bad weather that was cancelled. We were disappointed with St Thomas as it was all jewellery shops. As I say St Maarten was cancelled, we were meant to dock at 7ish so when we got up at 9 we were surprised to still be sailing. I asked a member of staff that said that when they got to St Maarten the waves were to big to dock and would not be safe. The port taxes were put onto our on board account. Funnily we still heard people complaining to customer services, the staff have more patience than me.
All staff were courteous, helpful and friendly. They really helped make it a memorable trip. I chose this ship to help persuade my husband that cruising trips are the future for us, it certainly did the trick.
