Embarkation was smooth and quick. We received our medallions in the mail prior to the cruise and set everything up beforehand and it was a breeze. We found the public areas of the ship to be clean and inviting. The lounges, bars, dining rooms and decks were all comfortable. We did notice that it was always colder in the Explorers Lounge and Promenade Deck in general than elsewhere on the ship. The entertainment was good and the Production Shows were EXCELLENT! Our cabin was clean and comfortable and our Balcony was larger than we expected which was a plus. The Medallion automatically unlocking the door was nice and it worked perfectly for us. As usual, our Cabin Steward was great. We made many new friends, as we do on each cruise. Additionally, everyone we came in contact with from the maintenance staff all the way up to the Captain were polite and friendly (especially Bobby, Francis and the staff at Explorer's Lounge!). We enjoyed all ports of call with the exception of Trinidad, where we didn't get off the ship. We took excursions in most every other port and found them all to be enjoyable in their own way. All in all, it was a Great Cruise with Great Ports; Great Staff and Crew; and a Great Ship!
