I chose this cruise because we wanted a Southern cruise from Puerto Rico. We usually cruise with Celebrity and noticed several differences; small but comparable. The layout particularly the Promenade was difficult to navigate at times. Some restaurants, stores and pubs are located there attracting a crowd in a relatively small space. The production shows were good. We did not eat in the Windjammer because it was too crowded during breakfast, and lunch times. We did eat breakfast in the dining room which was very nice. The dinner menu in the dining room was varied enough for any taste. The preparation and taste was O.K.==not great. The service could have been better. Some appetizers were forgotten to be served etc. We had a problem with our server and discussed this with the Matre De which ultimately resolved the problem. Cabin staff was great. Overall I didn't feel it had the upscale feel that Celebrity has. Aside from these comments we did enjoy ourselves and loved the cruise.

Ship was beautiful and staff very good.
