Paradise is just that. What a wonderful week. The new cruise director Micheal and his wife Jen were wonderful and very helpful. They were entertaining and always kept us informed. Our room was on the main deck at the back of the boat. I must say I would always pick the back of the boat in the future. The walk was sometimes long but you did not notice the motion at all. When I was in the Normandie Lounge everynight for the show I could feel the motion and had to take something for it. Our dinner guests were perfect and we had so much in common.

I traveled with my two teenagers, one girl and one boy who are very different. They found so much to do and they were never bored and let me enjoy the R & R in the sun. I loved the back of the boat for sunbathing as well. Why fight for the chairs down on the Lido deck were there is no breeze. The food as well as the presentation was awesome. I also liked having the tips put on my sign and sail card so I didn't have to worry about that. I would sign up for shore excursions quickly. I knew we were going to do our own thing in Cozumel (Chankanaab Park was great) but the others go really fast. Take beach shoes. The Dunns River Falls were great but the beggers scared my kids.
