Review summary

I was so excited for this ship. The food on this ship was very average. The buffet was not open late to just sit and play cards with family members. We had a large group and on other ships we have sat in the buffet area late in the evening playing cards. They close this area early so we had to find other places. Many of the other areas are lounges and/or bars (not suitable for young children). I think our group would prefer ships that are mid sized and have more areas to just sit and relax.

Onboard Activities

The ship had the same activities as other ships we have cruised on. The walking track was awesome! The pools were very good as well. Lots of chairs and space to relax.

Easy to get to the port. Seems like a smaller port.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

Did not like this port at all. Very dirty and seemed unsafe. Was not impressed with the staff as we came back on the ship either. Very nasty. Would not get off at this port again in the future.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

5 out of 5
RC kept shortening our stay at this port. Our favorite port and stayed only a short time. San Juan is by far the nicest of the ports visited!

Labadee (Cruise Line Private Island)

3 out of 5
Was an ok beach day. Venders are very aggressive! Food at the beach was not very good. Lots of lounge chairs and places to relax though. Beautiful area.
