Ship is huge- feels like a shopping mall. Over 6,000 people and the elevators were only tied up on the 1st and last day which amazed me. The service no matter where you go on the ship is extraordinary and the ship is very well maintained. We paid thousands for this trip but it seemed like they always wanted more money whether it be for the restaurants or excursions and what not. I did not like having to pay extra for good food. Food is important to me. The main dining room's food was just above TV Dinner quality. Yes, I ate but I was expecting way better. It wasn't easy to go explore the destinations on our own. We were very pressured to book the RC excursions. Not a true island feel- very touristy/manufactured. Out of all the shows, everyone seemed to agree that the ice skating show and the trapeze type show were the best. Our cabin was an ocean view balcony and it was excellent.
Deck 6 didn't have great reviews when I booked so I was nervous... but ended up being super happy with it. Room 6220 is midship. Because we had the drink package, it was an easy trip around the corner to the Schooner Bar or just down 1 level to the fancy coffees. No real negatives about the room except that the bed kind of blocks the closet (no big deal) and there is no cool water. That doesn't sound like a big deal until you have to brush your teeth with warm to hot water.
You can not take an excursion away from the port to explore the island. It looks like a beautiful theme park. It stormed while we there so we didn't enjoy the amenities. We would have totally done the zipline if it weren't for the storm. We tried to drink the recommended island drink they scooped out of a coleman cooler but it was sketchy.
Convenient parking. Superfast getting on and off the ship.
