Review summary

Good value for the money but you get what you pay for as far as quality & customer service. Excellent comedy shows but go early because seats fill up quick. Great stage show performances. Dont miss dinner. Pizza pirate is the only thing open after hours & comes with long lines & horrid customer service.

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Pizza pirate had long lines & horrible customer service. Buffets had great selection. Renoir & steakhouse food is good. They charge extra for soda on the ship & the buffet beverage machine does not have soda.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Entertaining shows, great comedy club, pools & hot tubs were always crowded & had too many unsupervised children.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Great except 'Fun Squad' DJ stated she couldnt take requests despite being asked several times by atleast 10 people in the crowd.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Many steak limited English. Some had poor or rude customer service but others were good so long as they weren't in a hurry.

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
Pool deck filthy 24/7. Puddles of dirty standing water. Buffet tables & self service areas needed cleaning. Poor layout. Lots of noise from the deck directly above the steakhouse & spa.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was kept clean & serviced as requested. Comfortable for 2 adults sharing 1 bed. Shower stall was small. Balcony wasnt very private (can see through cracks in the divider & can clearly hear conversation of those above & beside your balcony).

Ship tip

Bring your own soda. They charge extra for soda on the ship & the buffet beverage machine does not have soda.

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida Did not visit port

Did not do port excursion

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

5 out of 5
Resort for a day was amazing. I wish we had more time there. EXCELLENT excursion highly recommend & great value for the money. The massage was amazing also. Well worth the money to get the spa package.

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
Great shopping. Book jetskis fast. They fill up quick but luckily the islanders sell their own jetski excursions at a booth inside the port if u miss out on booking one online. Great tour guide. Small tour group. Beautiful beaches. Cool friendly stingrays.

Disembarkation

3 out of 5
Didnt get luggage tags or necessary forms until late. If you disclosed that u have an early flight in the travel section of the online check-in, you will be offered early disembarkation.
