Dr Seuss Splash Pad plus two large slides - great for all ages. Small playground for ages 2-5. Perfect food options - pizza and deli with hot dogs for picky eaters! Sports area was INCREDIBLE! Indoor and outdoor activities! Did I forget to mention the IMAX theatre and poolside movie screen?! - both showing new/newer family friendly movies! Arcade was nice! The sky ride was so much fun and the ropes course! Staff were so friendly and helpful! The different camp options for multiple age groups was a huge plus! Adult and family friendly shows during the day and evenings were great! Endless options for food and snacks. Coffee shop was great! So many chairs and seating options in the shade and sun. The Havana area was awesome for 12+. Spa looked amazing although I didn’t get to enjoy that part of the ship! So many comfy lounging areas in shade and sun. The serenity deck is wonderful for adults! I took advantage of the laundry facility. Not too unreasonably priced. There are 5 on the ship. Floors 2 6 7 8 and 9. There are irons and ironing boards in the laundry rooms!!!

Used Jiffy Jeff transportation from Fort Lauderdale to the Miami Port - HIGHLY Recommend. Fair priced, reliable, clean, friendly!

Sooooo much to do!! Take a taxi to an all inclusive resort like Mr Sanchos or Paradise Beach.

Grand Cayman (Georgetown)

Gorgeous!!! Take city bus for $2.50/pp to the public 7 mile beach

Ocho Rios

Make prior arrangements for transportation to an excursion. Definitely visit Dunn’s River Falls. Margaritaville and the public Turtle Beach are walking distance from the ship. Be prepared to be approached over and over by beggers trying to sell you something. Just politely say no thank you and keep walking.
