Enjoyed this cruise even thought we could not dock in Jamaica due to high waves. Noro virus was also on board so many passengers were confined to their rooms. The staff performed very well in order to contain. Food good overall. Did not appreciate having an additional charge menu with our meals, Meals are included, but they will keep the good items at a premium. Septic smells were in some areas of the ship. We did not get sick or have a problem with septic smells. For smokers, leaves little to be desired. You are confined to a small area deck 15. No shelter if rain. Poor service there, yet many guest were smokers. Smoking area inside ship is an insult when compared to other places on ship. Anytime dinning option did not work for us, as it took 1 to 1.5 hrs wait or you need to reserve a time. We changed to fixed dinning and all was well. Enjoyed Costa Rica and Cayman Islands. Would probably try another cruise line to see their rooms and their definition of all inclusive.

Good experience , friendly staff and overall well organized
