Excellent ship

Sail Date: March 05, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Beautifully decorated ship.  Excellent cruise director.  Great entertainment throughout the ship.  Many activities.  Many comedy shows with several comedians.  Good dancing opportunities.  Very friendly staff overall.


We enjoy taking couples dance lessons.  These were unavailable on this ship.  They had some line dancing lessons both at the main pool and on the stage of the theater, but no couples lessons. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Very clean. Our steward was excellent. Our only problem was that our toilet got stopped up. We reported this at 6 PM, and when we returned to our cabin at 12:30 AM, it was still stopped up. We called and a plumber was sent to our room immediately. He determined that a tube had become dislodged. Once he repaired the tube and reattached it, we were finally able to flush the toilet.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
When embarking, we were in a very slow line. It took us one hour while people in the other lines were through the line in half the time.

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
Tour to the Everglades is interesting.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Excellent shopping and jewelry stores on this island. Very clean. You can take a taxi to the beach/shopping area.
Basseterre, St. Kitts
You can take a taxi to any beach of your choice. The beaches are 25 minutes from the port, so you can actually take a tour of the island on the way to the beach.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
You can walk around Old San Juan and take a self tour of the old fortress without taking a taxi.
Grand Turk Island
There is a very nice beach right at the port. You do not have to take a taxi unless you want to take a tour of the island. Snorkeling is excellent here also.


We took a snorkeling tour in Grand Tour through the ship. The cost was reasonable. While it lasted only 2-1/2 hours, we were able to board a sizable and safe boat and snorkel in two locations. The snorkeling equipment and locations were excellent. The boat crew was competent and helpful.
