Review summary

Overall this cruise was a lot of fun, I would consider timing better next time and ensure that we are not cruising over spring break (assumed spring break season was over by end of March) if we are cruising without kids.

Embarkation

4 out of 5
Used Go Port Canaveral for transport from MCO area hotel to port - very smooth - didn't have to handle bags at port at all, about 15 minutes from bus to ship

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5

Alchemy Bar

5 out of 5

Alchemy Bar was outstanding - Vera, Zoltan, Zsolt and Nikolai made great cocktails on and off menu.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Pools very crowded - lots of families on spring break, chair hogs were also out in full force. Serenity offered a respite from the kids. Just a note - playing cornhole on a ship adds a whole new level of challenge.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Only in cabin to change, shower and sleep - met all those needs perfectly and was in good condition when we moved in for the week.

Ship tip

Deck 9 forward has a standing area atop the entire bridge, this was my favorite location when entering or leaving port.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida Did not visit port

Just got on and off boat, spent no time in port area.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

5 out of 5
Did Waterfalls of Damajagua through carnival - highly recommended- picked up in motor coaches and driven to excursion. $8 for locker rental is a little silly, just include in cost of excursion. Hike was not difficult, do recommend watershoes with good tread or I wore trail runners. Had 3 guides with ~20 tourists, guides were very good.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

4 out of 5
Did some shopping and island tour - too many ships (5) in port that day to go to beach

San Juan, Puerto Rico

4 out of 5
Walked to Castillo San Cristobal and El Morro then through Old San Juan. Lots of history at this port to see, very educational and an easy walking history lesson.

Grand Turk Island

5 out of 5
Jack's Shack beach day- highly recommended

Disembarkation

1 out of 5
Was a complete Charlie Foxtrot (google it). We were using Express Debarkation and following the announcements, but only us and a few other groups around us were. Apparently there is no point in waiting as everyone else was leaving when they wanted to and waiting until your deck is called is for suckers.
