Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We enjoyed the meals and wait staff in the main dining. Food in the dining room was excellent but not as plentiful (serving size). Buffets in the Windjammer were excellent. Great selection and the wait staff was excellent.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5


4 out of 5
Stage shows were all good but Edge Effect and Albert Lucas were excellent.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The customer service was excellent from all individuals.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Thought everything was well maintained.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The only negative about the cabin was that the balcony was small.

Ship tip

The ship is large enough to get disoriented, so if you travel with someone and split up always have a predetermined meeting place and time.

Ports of call

Tampa, Florida Did not visit port

This where we got on the boat and came right from the airport.

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
We liked the shopping district in George Town. Unfortunately our island tour was cancelled due to lack of participation so we shopped.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
We like Cozumel and did the El Rio Secreto excursion. The excursion originates in Playa de Carmen, so you need ferry transports from Cozumel and then bus transportation. Everything went very smoothly. Guides were excellent.
