We wanted to finish seeing the Western Caribbean before we tried the Eastern Caribbean. I had always wanted to see more cities in Central America. Our dance group was invited to tour with another group from Fresno, CA and the thought of a dancing cruise was definitely on our agenda. We had dance lessons and dances the night away many times on the cruise. The band was playing in the Ocean Room toward the aft of the ship. The RIFRATS was their name and they also had some gentlemen with horns that played also. The female lead singer of this band was terrific!!! The gentleman with her was very good too. The horn players were awesome too!!!! All in all, the best music on the ship for we dancers. Our Team Headwaiter, Nyoman, was a pleasure to see every evening. His bright smile always made us feel welcome. He remembered our names and also remembered the names of the other passengers that he was serving at the other tables nearby. He danced when the dancers came in and you could tell he was having a good time too! His partners Yuithing (Asst Team Waitress), and Sujana (Team Waiter) were Johnny on the spot working as a team to meet out every request.They were all truly happy working and enjoying the dancing that we did occasionally when the music started. Out table was surrounded by our dance group and it appeared that everyone had a great time and really enjoyed the experience. All the dinners were really delicious!!! Our compliments to the Chef and his crew!!!! Also, Duangporn (Head Waitress at a different table) was really enjoying her dancing every time the music was on. Her broad smile was a wonderful delight of the evening!! BEST HAMBURGERS EVER!!!!!!!!! AND GREAT TACOS AND TACO SALADS!!!!!

Awesome Vacation!!

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin 8C
Our cabin was perfect for us! There was just enough room to store our clothes and enjoy sitting on the balcony and having a glass of wine! Our cabin steward Agnelo did a fantastic job for us. We told him our plans for in and out of our room so when we returned each day, everything was just perfect! His little cloth animals gave us a smile as we entered the room. He was always happy with a smile on his face when he greeted us in the hallway. From my understanding, he has been doing that for more than 20 years and he still enjoys his work!! Thank you Agnelo!!!!
