Lower points...1)Due to the weather, a lot of excursions were cancelled on Wednesday. When the weather got better, for some reason they cancelled more...a lot of people were upset. I mean, Friday morning it had to be 90 and sunny...I saw a lot of angry people. Our Coral Reef Fishing was cancelled, which stunk because I had to go to Shore Excursion multiple times the first day when my tickets never appeared in my room!
2)I'm a sub teacher, so I like kids. But...when they are unsupervised, all in the adult hot tubs with no adults (there is a sign!)....all literally laying on staircases and hallways with no supervison so you couldn't get by....it got me annoyed. Some parents were not watching their children! We also met a woman (in a wheelchair) that has extreme diffuculty getting around the ship due to children playing in the elevators with all the buttons! In fact one of them (young teen) told us she was bored so it was fun to play in the elevators....I can't tell you what the disabled woman said to them! I think that they need to plan more activities for kids so they aren't as disruptive.
3) Two crewmembers in particular...the DJ in the club, who refused to play any requests even though there was no one dancing and the casino manager, who believed my husband (who is almost 23) was an underage minor and accused him of such even when presented with ID. The manager thought my husbands ID was fake!
Recommendations: Definitely go to Tobacco Bay and go snorkeling. It's the closest beach to the boat, maybe a 20 minute hilly walk...it was amazing. Schools of fish swimming all around you...awesome! Great beach for children, beautiful water and formations....
Because of the tropical storm, we didn't see as much as we would have liked....but it was fun! I can't wait to book another cruise!
If anyone has any questions, please ask away...I'll try to help!
