Greatest Vacation We Ever Had

Sail Date: May 05, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

It was the greatest vacation my wife and I ever had in our 29 years of marriage. Except for the traffic condition going to the Bayonne port, everything went smoothly till the end of our cruise. The crew and the staff were very efficient and friendly. The ship was very clean and the hallways to the staterooms are wide - in fact, all the places in the ship were spacious. Dynamic dining was a great idea and it allowed us to choose the restaurant and the menu we wanted. There was a long list of daily onboard activities and there was never a dull and boring moment even at late hours. Since my wife and I are avid ballroom dancers, the Music Hall and the Boleros are 2 great venues for dancing every night aside from other themed dance parties in other venues like the Two70 and the Poolside. Overall, it was a great vacation and experience for us.Love Yummy Big Smile

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin was very clean and tidy. It was spacious and the cabin attendant always made it sure that things were tidy. The 2 closets and the drawers were more than enough for our clothes and other clothing accessories.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Very systematic.
Ship Quality
Great ship configuration and layout. Very clean and proper hygiene is observed specially in restaurant/dining areas.
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Love the dancing in both Music Hall and the Boleros.
Children's Programs Have not been into one. Sorry.
Entertainment activities were great. Love the 3 complimentary shows - We Will Rock You, Spectra, and The Gift. The live band Katrina Love & Synergy was great with excellent repertoire of danceable song. For Latin dancers, the band Mamboleos offered good music, but sometimes the tempo was not right and they lack skills to play Tango tunes.
Service and Staff
Our stateroom attendant - Rooney plus Irene; Restaurant/Wait staff - Raquel, Darcy, Geraldine, Andrea, Hicela; Entertainment staff - Heart and the band Katrina Love & the Synergy. They're all great!!!
Food and Dining
Apart from traditional dining, the 'Dynamic' dining is very good with a lot dining options and venue choices.
Cape Liberty (Bayonne), New Jersey
Because of traffic in the bridge going to, be sure to get to the port ahead of your appointed check-in time.
King's Wharf, Bermuda
Due to heavy rain and strong winds, shore activities were cancelled.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Beautiful beaches and friendly people. Very low prices for souvenir items, such as t-shirts, hats, tropical shirts, etc.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Walking around the historic sites and shopping the stores in Old San from the dock is great. No need to get to a tour bus.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
Swimming in the beach wasn't good. There were rocks in the water. However, the complimentary lunch/picnic food provided by the ship was great.


Be sure to purchase any of the Internet Package; you need it to share your experiences and photos hot while cruising. Yes, book your restaurant reservations and shore excursions ahead of time for some savings and to avoid lines.
