The cruise itself was great. Embarkation and Debarkation were the worst we have ever had and this was our 21st cruise! Totally disorganized and poorly managed. The ship was a little worn here and there but overall pretty good. The pink "doughnuts" everywhere were a bit jarring. Loved the decor in the El Morocco lounge with the palm trees, etc. We only say one of the nightly shows in the theater, a singer named Sheila Kay, she was excellent and did a terrific show. Was not impressed with Princess Cays, just another cruise-run island with not much to offer. Did the Reggae, Rum and Jerk in Ocho Rios and had a lot of fun. It was a little early to eat when we got to Mrs. T's but the food was good. Had a great time at Margaritaville learning to mix drinks and dance. Had jerk meats again at the last stop and it was delicious. Did the Bar-Hopping in Grand Cayman. After some confusion about the tour start time, we were on our way. Not a beer drinker so did not do much at the Caymen Brewery, but really enjoyed the rum distillery. The rum was very smooth and high quality and we had so much that we just stayed on the bus for the last short stop! In Cozumel, we did the resort for a day at Playa Uvas with open bar. It was a beautiful day and a lovely breeze and a gorgeous view. The comedians on the ship were a highlight for us. All in All, a wonderful trip.

Cabin was nice, clean and adequate although could have used more storage. Enjoyed the accessible bathroom. Room steward was great.
