Review summary

Very enjoyable and relaxing and the shore excursions were perfect. Look forward to doing the Southern Caribbean again. What was relaxing was two days at sea going before porting and two days back at sea. Crew as great and accommodating.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was great and a lot of selections. Chops was fabulous. Enjoyed the different theme evenings in the Windjammer (only did this twice). Main Dining Room food was great.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We went to the Schooner Bar for trivia each morning at 10am and would enjoy a few mimosas as well.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
DJ's around the pool area were great. Enjoyed the Piano man at the Schooner bar in the evening.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
No kids in our party. So this was not applicable to us.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Felt that they went above and beyond to accommodate our wants and needs. Very friendly and personable.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Even though Ship was large it was easy to navigate around from our room to any of the venues or eating places. Very clean but some minor touch up on some of the chairs.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Perfect for the two of us. Had a cove balcony didn't have the glass wall like Harmony or Symphony but was perfect for my wife since she is afraid of heights. Bedding and carpet was very clean.

Ship tip

Don't compare this ship with others and have high expectations. Just relax and be pampered by the staff and you will be satisfied. Recommend doing a specialty dining at Chops Grille.

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

5 out of 5

Willemstad, Curacao

5 out of 5
Very beautiful island and people were very friendly and helpful. We decided to do a city tour ($20 per person) that to our surprise included a beer, soda or water. Also, stopped at a distillery that made the Curacao liqueur which we purchased the Blue and the Brown (chocolate flavor). Then we went into town to walk around and shop.

Kralendijk, Bonaire

5 out of 5
People were very helpful and friendly. We did a beach excursion thru Epic tour. The two ladies were fantastic and very accommodating. Klein Bonaire is the beach we went to. Not a lot of shade so recommend SUN SCREEN. If you like snorkeling this is the place to do it.

Oranjestad, Aruba

5 out of 5
Very enjoyable. We did the Submarine excursion and was well worth the money $125/person for 1 1/2 hours (Boat taxi ride to Submarine and back to port). After the excursion we decided to shop. Did not feel pressured to purchase anything as we shopped along the main street. We stopped at 'Eetcafe The Paddock' for some drinks before boarding.

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
Was alot easier to self disembark compared to the larger ships we cruised before. Took a little longer than expected to come off ship due to port authority.
