Review summary

I am not a cruise person. This was my first cruise and my daughter's. Overall, it was ok. The service was very good.

It was ok. I don't care for lines or large crowds, but I knew what I was getting into. This was my first cruise ever.

Cabin / Stateroom

Very clean and comfortable. Had a very hard time sleeping due to being at the front of the ship - the ship moves at a faster speed during the night and when it hit large waves there was a very loud crashing sound - ALL NIGHT LONG.

Ship tip

Waiting for the tinder to take you to Princess Cay was a pure waste of time. I waited well over an hour. Be early!

Not much at the port. You need to go to the beaches. Palm Beach was beautiful. Ship wreck snorkel via catamaran.

Again, a lot of people, long lines. We did not travel home with our 3 pieces of luggage - they were missing, but then found and FedExed tour home.
