A few recollections and reflections. The bad ones first. The ships low ceilings and color selections gave the impression of oldness and tightness. The staterooms were clean and were kept that way throughout the voyage. The condition of the furniture was another thing. The sofa bed and vanity chair were scratched worn and stained. The hair dryer, vanity lighting and shower curtain did not come up to par, all need to be improved. Room service was always on time but you had to keep an open mind. We never received our order the way we wrote it out on any of our 10 days. The good memories far outweigh the bad. The fact that you can bring your own wine on board for a drink or two before dinner sets a good mood. The ice cream bar makes every meal and snack a pleasure. There are not enough words to describe the beauty of Half Moon Cay. The pavilion set up along with the beauty of the water and sand should get a 5 rating. An extra day on this stop would have been great. The ships cruise director and entertainment were very good, better than other cruise lines we have been on. The Steel Drum Quartet was exceptionally good. The ships library, internet facilities , movie theatre and gym were a pleasure to use and were far superior to the same services on other cruise ships we have traveled on. The sail away events on the Lido pool deck were enjoyable and added to the ambiance of the Caribbean. It would be nice if a schedule of daily events was posted near the most active elevator areas such as near the lido restaurant. It would save many a trip back to the room. Many suggestions listed in Cruise Critic were used. (night light, wall plug extension, clothes pins, duct tape, and extra dollar bills) Our best memories are of the crew and people we met on the cruise. All the good things on the ship seemed to bring out a good attitude from the crew and passengers.

Great get away
