I chose this cruise for my boyfriends birthday and our first vacation together without kids and to say we had an amazing time is an understatement! The food was great, from the buffet, to fine dining, deli, pizza, burrito and burger place! Prices for drinks were reasonable. We did not get the drink package due to not being heavy drinkers and it was worth just using our card here and there...drinks were from $8-$11 depending on what you ordered... The dining room for breakfast and dinner we went to everyday during our stay. We requested Dennie and Dennis for our waiters each time ! They are great! Our breakfast and dinner was out in minutes when we put our order in ! Make sure you request them! We had other waiters the first two days and there was a big difference in service until we met dennie and dennis! The cabin was small but it was fine for just the two of us...The cleaning service was great! Sherman was so nice and made you feel like family! Only complaint about the room was that the king bed was two twins put together so sleeping in the middle was a little uncomfortable here and there ! But we slept great! Also, there were only two outlets and the light in the bathroom had to be on each time you wanted to charge your phone. Entertainment was great! The Motown show was my favorite! The performers were great and lets me not forget the cruise director Marcello ! He was great! The only show I wasn't too impressed on was the Latino night...it was very americanized. I was hoping for a little more..but hey I stayed the whole show and singing so it wasn't to bad!! Overall all the performances and shows were great! Staff was super nice and made you feel like family! The activities were great as well! Oh and the ports were perfect!!!i highly recommend this cruise!

Best cruise experience!
