Honeymoon Cruise

Sail Date: April 02, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was large and beautiful. The decor was whimsical and enchanting. Although, it was a little confusing getting around the ship at times. Our room was very nice and roomy with plenty of storage space. Our room stewards and waiters were attentive and available.
At peak times, lounge chairs were packed tightly around the pool areas and nearly impossible to get two chairs together near the pool. Alcoholic beverages were very expensive. More music around the decks would have been nice. I would prefer more beachy island music, rather than some of the selections that were played.
The food was plenty but not excellent - not very spicy - more bland. Specialty foods, like the chocolate display, were so crowded, you would have had to stand in line nearly 30 minutes to get served on the buffet. Not worth it.
At checkin time, we were sent away, and told to return later in the afternoon. We stood in line hours at the checkin (the ship was late docking), not fun.
I would never do the 7 Mile Beach beach excursion in Grand Cayman again. It was a tiny roped off area of a small hotel, with lounge chairs packed tightly together from the water back to the hotel.
Golfing in Jamaica at White Witch was awesome. The excursion went smoothly (except when our van returned to the ship, officials would not let our dirver enter the lot because of his van documentation not being up to date - so we had to carry our clubs and things from the gate). The course is breathtaking and the service was above expected. All of this came with a high pricetag - my husband played the course and I rode along in the cart. After tips and rentals, it was about $300.00 for him to play - but it was worth it.
Overall, it was a good experience and we would cruise again.

Pros: Good personal service

Cons: Pool areas were overcrowded and drinks were very expensive

Ship Quality
Ship size, decor, cleanliness were very good. The layout and accessibility had drawbacks.
Food and Dining
Overall, food experience was very good, but sort of bland and some very small portions in the dining room. Big eaters at our table ordered double.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Cozumel, Mexico
We ate at La Choza for lunch and enjoyed it. Shopped at Rogers Boots and got a good deal there.
George Town, Grand Cayman
The 7 mile Beach excursion was not good.
Montego Bay, Jamaica
White Witch golf course was excellent. Great experience and breathtaking view. Very expensive. Could have included lunch.
