First, I would like to say that this was my first cruise and I thought everything was great. The ship Ecstasy had a late start due to mechanical problems but other than that, everyone from the cabin steward to the dining staff were awesome.
A little bit of advice is keep track of your account on board the ship, the alcoholic drinks were a little pricey. If you want gifts and souvenirs get them in Progresso, they were cheaper.
The cabin was great (a little small), but I didn't spend too much time in the cabin.
There was always something going on the ship. If you like to dance, go to Stripes disco; it was a lot of fun and the DJ was great.
My first cruise and I look forward to another one. Word for the wise be patient when you leave the ship to go home, getting through customs was long and I recommend that take your own luggage off the ship instead of leaving the luggage by your cabin door the night before. The meals were awesome. Great ship and crew. Bon Voyage.
