The cabin was a bit small but that's expected when you're looking for the least expensive room. Our room attendant Bruce kept it neat and tidy regardless how much of a mess I left. The towel animals were an entertaining touch. He was very personable and a pleasure to have as an attendant.

Ship tip

Definitely get soft serve ice cream by the pools on the upper deck. Definitely go to the Windjammer buffet. The food was top notch with a wide selection. Experience the main dining room which is not only beautiful but the waiter and his assistant were impeccable!

Ports of call

San Juan, Puerto Rico

Try to get there a day early and stay a day at the end of the cruise. I didn't get to explore the beautiful island because as soon as we arrived we boarded the ship and hopped on a plane as the cruise was over. Even still, the island looked like an awesome place to explore.

Kralendijk, Bonaire

Take the Asain junker snorkel excursion. The captain is hilarious and his crew are very helpful. The rum at the end of the excursion is also a plus.

Willemstad, Curacao

The motor boat snorkel excursion was spectacular. Going out into the ocean, seeing the beautiful homes in the lagoon, snorkeling at the sunken boat are all must do's.

Oranjestad, Aruba

The beaches are beautiful! The excursion with the two snorkel dives and the unlimited rum at end along with a barbecue lunch was a blast!

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

You must go to Maho Beach and see the planes fly in low over the beach.
