BEWARE: Extremely overcrowded!!! We chose this cruise because of the extra perks with the purchase of cruise. The extra perks were: Open Bar (all drinks included); 250 Wi-fi minutes; free specialty dining meals. The embarkation from Port Canaveral was smooth, the disembarkation was a nightmare extremely disorganized. Cabin and cabin steward were excellent, as well as, most other ship crew. The pool area is small due to the kiddie pool and water slides, which produced an extreme shortage of lounge chairs at the pool. People get up as early as 7 a.m. to reserve a pool chair - usually with a towel, misc. So good luck finding a chair later in the day. Be aware -RESERVATIONS NEEDED for specialty dining AND entertainment in the large theater. If one does not make reservations BEFORE the cruise, good luck getting in. Wish we would have know this before booking cruise. We tried 3 months ahead of time and not successful as our specialty dining reservations were lost! Would recommend Ocean Blue restaurant, best on the ship. Entertainment mediocre at best. Hollowing dueling pianos best entertainment on ship, with the exception of Iguana Duo. Ports: Nothing special - Roatan Honduras was fun, great snorkeling with Jolly Roger. Would not sail with this cruise again.........
