i mean the trips didnt suck. for me it was really too much ship-time, not enough time off. you can plan all the day trips, which gets pretty pricey, but they always seemed rushed. that ship is on a tight schedule.

i jogged alot on the ship and worked out in the gym..and i still gained alot of weight. the food is really endless.
