Awesome Cruise!

Sail Date: September 13, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation.   There was plenty to do when we didn't want to relax, but there were plenty of places on board where we could chill if that's what we chose to do.   Entertainment was great and entertainment staff was very interactive.   Food was good although we didn't typically eat at the lido buffet.   The only down side to the cruise was the bad weather in La Romana, Dominican Republic and our shore excursion was canceled due to lightning.  We made the best of it since the cruise line can't control the weather.   We just ended up with a quiet relaxing day on board instead.   Would probably still like to see Dominican Republic but will most likely choose a cruise that goes to the new Amber Cove instead.   Loved Aruba and would look into flying there in the future for a stay in Aruba outside of cruising.  

Embarkation and Disembarkation
Wish we had know about FTTF (Faster to the Fun) option. The check-in and disembarkation lines were not good.
Ship Quality
Everywhere we went on the ship, crew members were always cleaning and working on the ship. It's not a new ship and it does show some wear but overall, it was kept in very good condition.
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Loved the juggler show and the hypnotist. Also loved The Brits show and the Epic Rock shows.
Service and Staff
Our cabin steward, Marvin, was awesome! Also our dining room servers, Ricardo, I Made, and Pranata took really good care of us.
Food and Dining
Food was decent. Good variety but wish there was more late night dining options
Grand Turk Island
Sipping a cold tropical drink on the beach at Jack's Shack.
La Romana, Dominican Republic
Willemstad, Curacao
Oranjestad, Aruba
