Overall Very Good Cruise

Sail Date: June 16, 2016

Reviewed: 11 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship itself was kept spotless.  The crew was very helpful and friendly.  The room stewards were very reliable and always attentive.  I definitely would recommend choosing the Specialty Restaurant package to enhance your experience.  The complimentary restaurants are OK, but the food and desserts tend to be similar among the four complimentary restaurants.  The Windjammer is good for families with young children.  The food in the Windjammer is nothing fancy.  The bumper cars were fun, but it's about a 30-45 minutes wait.  Get there early.  Overall, you will enjoy this ship and the activities and entertainment they provide.  Check-in was fast.  Check-out was slow.

Cabin / Stateroom
This cabin was clean and good for two people. Anymore than two people will be tight. The view was great and unobstructed. If you are looking for a good balcony cabin this was the one. The height was perfect being on Deck 12. The mattress was not too comfortable and should be replaced. Overall, good cabin mid-ship.

Cape Liberty (Bayonne), New Jersey
Check on Bayonne Bridge closure times.
King's Wharf, Bermuda
The Dolphin Quest shore excursion was not cheap, but it still was a great experience for all. The photos there are expensive.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
We chose the St. Maarten Island Tour which was very good.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Just walked around the streets of Old San Juan. Nice historical sites to visit.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
Parasailing was great at this location. You won't regret it.


Purchase the Specialty Dining package, and also the WiFi is good to have unless you prefer to be totally disconnected, then that's fine too. We found the later dining times to be best for us since they also have a show every night about 10-10:15pm.
