First if your parking at the port,you will need to have your credit card ready to pay for parking,the embarkation was swift and easy,we walked on with two bottles of wine one with a screw off top so we could have a glass on the lido with lunch.Buffet food was a B +,Guy Fieri Burger Joint was excellent,The Havanna Bar right next to the lido marketplace had your omelet station which was excellent,The Food in the restaurants were excellent.Activities were typical Bingo and Trivia,,Cruise Director Paulie A+,Very little live music The Jenkins Twins a Country duo were excellent,shows in the liquid lounge were dissapointing.Being a musician and to see well dressed dancers and singers singing live to a recorded track to me was poor .their epic rock show on the last night was borderline embarrassing to watch.there was a guitarist who played rock staples was just shredding for almost 15 min gave me a headache,Half Moon cay A+Freeport a industrial port we get off walked around the dockside shops (be careful,our excursion was cancelled,we asked at the excursion desk if there was anything to do in Freeport,the associate said no.that was a lie)if you just want to get off the ship and walk around ,listen to a live reggae band,which the ship should have ,and have a pina colada,with a 151 run floater.you are good.ship was dated,pick your balcony in the middle of the ship.had room 7331. which was in the back of the ship was rocking to the point it was getting sickning.we have been on many cruises.never felt sick.the cabin was acceptable,no ventilation in the bathroom.bring deodorizers. The attraction for us was being in Myrtle Beach and being able to drive to the port.in closing if you are a new cruiser it is a good ship to start.for gods sale dont start on the Allure then go on the sunshine

Aft-View Extended Balcony

Small,but acceptable.when you are in the rear of the ship during moderate weather be prepared to be nauseous
