my wife and I took this cruise for a mid-winter get away and celebrate our up coming 30th anniversary. Over all about what we expected if not somewhat better. I will say that some of the theater entertainment was "high schoolish" reminded me of the high school drama club performers.. Also still trying to figure out why I was billed approx 150.00 more than my final on board statement showed.. The ports were nice with the exception of Ponce.. No reason to get off ship there. The boardwalk area is still recovering from hurricane season and the list of things to do in town was not exciting.. Would like to have spent more time in Barbados and St Lucia..(love those islands) But understand the need to get the ship out of port. All staff we dealt with were awesome, The main dining room people are great,, Food was above expectations. Still hope they can do something about "deck chair hogs" I saw numerous chairs vacant for over 1 hour with towel and personal stuff. I do not have an issue with saving a chair for your self or spouse, But 1/2 hr is all that is allowed, however not enforced by staff. I have and will move your stuff myself but that could cause a problem someday.

Awesome cruise; some on board entertainment sub-par
