I chose this cruise for the location, destination as well as the ship.It was perfect for us. It has a lot to offer like the water works area,sport deck was excellent. My grand children 10,11,12 fully enjoyed the rope course , the water racing slides,pool table, foose ball, chess , bean bag toss and mini golf. The pool itself is small but very nice and refreshing. Ship looks beautiful and clean. All the staff was very friendly. We used the public restrooms a lot as we were out of our cabin most of the day and they were all clean .It was nice to see top management out and about often, not only to observe that all is running well but to stop and visit with families making them feel welcomed. It was a true delight to my grand children to play a game of foose ball and chat with the Hotel Director , Niksa P. I have been on many cruises where you may get a hello greeting from upper staff and that is it as they are very busy understandably. A fantastic Cruise , food was great in buffet as well as dining rooms. We fully enjoyed both. Dining room staff at our table was spot on perfect. The kids did go to the kids club a few times and really liked it but we stayed busy with activities and shore excursions that the kids didn't go everyday. .We had room service one morning and they were very prompt and enjoyable. We did the Dolphin Play Excursion, pricey but they did a great job with the kids. You can take photos of your family but you are not up close to capture alot as your family is in the water with dolphins so about 50/50 were ok pics so we did buy from the company as well...pricey too but worth it. Wonderful Memories. We also did the Crystal Caves and Aquarium tour with zoo. Caves were Awesome Aquarium and zoo very small and so so. We stopped at a light house for the kids to climb as well. We had a fantastic beach day at Horseshoe Bay. So pretty there, yes lots of people but restrooms and place to eat and drink and a life guard on duty. We took the bus at 7.00 a person each way. The bus area is right off the ship .. easy ... We got our moneys worth for our family and have made memories for our 3 grand kids forever

Cabin Review

Ocean View

Cabin 6B

Cabin was large enough for 5 of us, a pull bed from the ceiling for one and couch pulls out or we had a cot in front of couch to make a full bed plus the king bed . Everything was clean. Room is not far from elevators but stairs are great for going ashore to the gangway.

Just picked up the local bus to and from 7.00 per person each way. A very Beautiful Pink Sand Beach
