This was our first cruise in 17+ years, we took this cruise with our 8 & 13 yr old boys. We selected this cruise as it was a 5 day cruise, left from Miami March 5th and visited Roatan, Honduras(March 7th) and Cozumel,Mexico(March 8th) - other days were spent at sea. The boat is going into dry dock for some remodeling(MAY 2012), but as judged by us and other passengers I asked it really doesn't need too. Embarkation was easy, and getting off(early check-out) was even easier.
ROOM - We had a balcony room on floor 7 close to elevators, which made getting to our room easy.The room had a 'queen?' bed + sofa bed(for 1 person) + bunk bed - all comfortable. Had 3 luggages + 3 carry-ons and no problems storing luggages and clothes we had packed, + plenty of hangers. Bathroom was small, but sufficient - plenty of storage space once again, and plenty of shower pressure. Overall room condition was good, some caulking needed in bathroom, balcony needs some painting but again THESE ARE VERY MINOR, I would reserve the same room next time around.
STAFF - WOW!WOW!WOW! I was a little concerned when booking and seeing that the gratuities(tips) were $12.50p.p/day (kids also pay this rate), but in the end not only did I gladly pay the gratuities but made sure room stewards, waiters, somelier, kids center staff got an extra tip for their incredible work. I could go on and on here but in short these people do their job day in & day out always with a SMILE and always making you feel welcomed and by doing their VERY best to accomodate your requests. So a VERY special thank you to Koco, Sheldon, Ali & the staff at the Fun Factory.FOOD/DRINKS
Room 7172 - Close to elevators, plenty of storage room, two floors up from walking deck below but in a very quiet section of ship so you never see anyone belwo on deck.
Took a cab to West End beach(BANANARAMA), $86 round-trip. Moses our cab driver was GREAT! Details of the island, he stopped for us to take pictures and offred an isalnd tour. This stretch of beach was crowded but water is incredible and we would return here next time aroud.
