This was our second cruise and we were concerned that it would not be as good as the first. Our first seemed flawless to us so we thought, there was no way that we could have two great cruises. We were wrong. This cruise was as good as the first. Embarkation: This was painless for us. We arrived about 9:45 and waited for about 45 min before they let us in. We went right in, through security and then to the counters to get our sea passes. We had to wait a little bit for everyone to get off of the boat but then we went right on. We were eating in the Windjammer by 11:15. We were able to get into our rooms at 1pm. We had a balcony room on deck 6. We were just fwd of the main stairs on the forward/starboard side of the ship. It was great. We were less than a minute from the promenade deck. Sailing: It was great. The ship is awesome. There is always something to do. Excursions: We went with a RC excursion. I hear that going it on your own is cheaper. As this was only our second cruise we did not want to risk it. We went to Playamaya in Cozumel. That was over rated unless you had kids. We just laid on the beach which was nice but it was not worth the $90. We did a catamaran and snorkel over the USS Kittywake...this was awesome!! Perfect weather and water temp. In Jamaica we just went shopping. I like the watch selections in Jamaica. Entertainment: We love the shows on the ship. We enjoy going to dinner strolling down the promenade and then going to the show. Now...it is not Broadway but it is entertaining and we always have fun. Disembarkation: We took advantage of the "Self Assist" program. This is where you carry your own luggage off the ship. This was great. We arrived at our "muster" area at 7:15 and we were in our car by 7:45. We will always do this from now one. Overall: It was once again a fantastic cruise and we have already booked another for next year.

Great Cruise - Again!
