Great ship wonderful time on our 8 night cruise. This ship looks very similar to Oasis and Allure only newer so if you like them you will enjoy this ship as well. The food is really good but by the end of the cruise I was really ready to have more choices but that is with any cruise for me. I bought a soda package but would not recommend doing so unless you spend your time around the sports deck. The only cola machine I saw was at the basketball area. If you go to a bar to simply get a soda refill it takes forever and the roving bar service team for the most part seem irritated to bring a coke. Most got a long face when asked to bring a coke. One even asked is that all? One guy took the order and never brought the drink. No more soda package for me. The reason for my review is to warn others about the unsanitary conditions at the barbecue on Labadee. I have eaten from these venues many, many times over the years but no more. In the past I go to the barbecue when the line is long and I guess the volume of people keeps the flies away from the food. I was one of the first in line last week and noticed all of the wrappings were removed from the food containers. As I proceeded through the line I was disgusted to see hundreds of flies just covering all of the food. The hd hb buns were covered with flies and I guess that had been the case since the wrap was removed. I will never eat at one of these barbecues again until better preparation is done to keep the food enclosed and sanitary. My wife and I returned to the ship early to eat a late lunch. The swarm of flies all over this food still makes me sick to think about it.

Nice cabin, everything very clean but the bed on my side was really flat would not want to do a long cruise on that bed.Xavier the CS did a great job for us.
