Me and my fiance had an absolute blast on this trip! I wasn't satisfied with the service on the outside main decks at all with the exception of the bar by the 24 hour pizza! But then we found ALCHEMY BAR near the Hollywood NightClub where they do the Art Auctions during the day and ended up using this bar exclusively the entire time! They are master mixologists with special tools and really CARE about your drink. I felt like I was at a bar at a 5 star restaurant! If you go to Alchemy bar VIORICA & MILAN will take VERY GOOD CARE OF YOU! Their drinks are amazing and they are so friendly and passionate about what they do! Especially if you are on the drink package, you will get the best bang for your buck at Alchemy Bar. And it was never crowded! Busy but not a 30 min wait for drinks like it was on the decks! The NightClub was ALOT of fun and DJ IceCold knows how to really throw a good party! The only lame night in the club was because DJ Icecold had gotten sick one night and couldnt spin, and unfortunately the guy that replaced him was trying his hardest but just couldnt keep the crowd happy and they even ended up closing early. BUT, overall it was an absolute blast! The Band that plays the live music looking down onto the main decks was AMAZING! The singers voice sounded better than the real songs and my jaw dropped when I realized what I was hearing was live because it sounded that good! Justin Tyme was an absolute HOOT and a must see. We ended up watching his set one night on accident and I was so glad we ended up there! Nothing I would have done initially but was so glad that I did. Great personality and lets you holler songs at him to play live. Really engages with the crowd! The Comedy on the cruise was out OUT OF THIS WORLD but definitely not for the faint of heart. I had an amazing time, but definitely only the 21+ crowd could appreciate it fully. The food was very good but did not agree with my stomach. Get the best for your included meals and eat at the restaurants! You do not have to wait in endless buffet lines and the service is so much better. Breakfast was amazing, we had the steak and eggs the last night and it was delicious. We had a great great great time and I would DEFINITELY do it again! VIORICA and MILAN really made the experience for us though at Alchemy Bar. That is who you want to see and where you want to go! I would highly recommend this cruise ship!!

Absolutely wonderful experience if you figure out the right places to go!!!

We ended up with a handicapped cabin that was much bigger than the others so we lucked out! With an ocean view balcony!

    The guides were AMAZING!!!! We lucked out so much, the boat can fit up to 60 people and that day we were only about 9 so we ended up with a basically private scuba diving tour! GIL was AMAZING as were Chicken and the other guides! The pictures came out absolutely beautiful and we learned so much about the waterlife there and the importance of its preservation. What an absolutely beautiful tour! They took such good care of us and I would highly recommend this!

    Bourbon Street was fun but that was the ugliest dingiest city I have ever seen in my life. The water looks like sewage and all the buildings looked dilapidated and gross.
