We chose this trip due to 4 islands in 7 night trip-only 2 sea days. We love going to many places. Do NOT take port hole room 2220-VERY noisy-under the stage. After each night's late show, there was massive noise while the set was broken down-about 25-30 minutes worth. ALSO-very loud getting anchored into the tender ports-starting about 6:40 AM. First try for "your time" dining and we really enjoyed it. Male table waiter Leslie was recommended-VERY funny and terrific-Always had lots of laughs! Didn't attend the lip sync contest this time-have seen it a number of times. Know it's a break for the TERRIFIC show stage performers- but really it's dumb-they should drop it!. Other shows were terrific-with lots of special graphics, lighting and terrific singing and dancing. Fun Halloween activities-but wished it started earlier-costume parade at 11-too late. Cabin service was nothing special. We were told "We have lots of cabins. Do you want AM or PM service?"- I did ask for and received an ice bucket with ice (2 x daily) but wet towels weren't picked up or any other service except in the AM. First try of the steak house-LOVED it-worth the extra charge of$35 each. Cruise director Matey-from England wore crazy suits each evening. He kept the party going. Food was really good for the value of this price range. Embarkation has changed-SO much easier!!!! Two carnival SCUBA excursions- WONDERFUL in Roatan-LOVE Anthony's key resort-been there 5 times. Belize one was very expensive and not too much help by boat staff.

"Free at Midnight" house lobby band was always excellent/varied
