Just got back from our spring break cruise, brought our 2 (17 yr old) boys with us. Had 2 rooms, balcony for us and inside cabin for the boys. We were able to put the boys together although "officially" we were to split them up and have an adult in the room with them. Very crowded ship but it didn't seem crowded except the elevators at popular times. We came in a day early and stayed in Old San Juan, travel was easy and smooth. Got to the ship at 11 am and only waited about 15 minutes before we got on board, again, very smooth and easy. Rooms were clean and we had plenty of room to put things. We had a starboard side room and unfortunately the port side saw the island coming in, except St Thomas, which you could see from both sides. However, we were able to see the sunset on 3 of the sail aways, hence a good trade off. Lots of activities for everyone, all were good. The basketball court probably needs to have a higher net around the court when the soccer tournaments are done because they lost quite a few balls overboard, hence the tourney stopped! Food was good to great. Windjammer is basic buffet food but was good. Go to the back of the room which has another line - quicker. Sometimes different sides of the lines had different foods, so be sure to look. Tables were hard to come by during the peak times. We did the My time dining and were a little disappointed in our table location half the time, which was in a busy area. We switched 2 of the nights which gave us different waiters each time. I also thought you cold order off the menu, but we were not allowed, you had to order from what was on the menu. We did Portofino's one night and it was excellent Weather was marginal and that was disappointing. Easy to get off and on the ship at the different ports. Be sure to bring a photo ID in St Thomas, as its needed when you get back on the ship. This was not mentioned in the daily newsletter. Also have your cruise card when you depart the ship, as I heard some folks threw theirs away when leaving their cabin on the last day. We stayed an extra day in San Juan and were glad to have a day to relax before we flew out on Monday. Would definitely go on this cruise again!

Great trip through S. Caribbean
