Review summary

For first time cruise it was a great intro, stateroom staff and dining room staff were great. Staff are polite and quick to respond. Loved the sunsets on deck, had great weather a bit of rain. Dining room dinnners were very good. Like salad choice at buffet. Good pizza, close to Neapolitan fare. Guys burgers great when hot. Loved the citrus water at debark/embark, would prefer on ship rather than juice. Movie nights were great. Muster exercise slow, should show on monitors or in 2 waves as it took an hour to organize crowd. Use large theatres with staff demo safety vests, avert guests to view on TV channel in rooms. Lots of paper waste, tho for first timers helpful. Suggest have daily initerary on monitors in public lobby with take away pamphlets. I guess people like the personalization. Loved the private island, smaller crowds as not a shop a holic. But need shade but have to pay for it, I,e. Umbrella rentals. There should be a cruise culture where people don’t leave their garbage on floors/elevators, glass shattered in theatre and person left behind without averting staff. Hazard to kids. Don’t like walking through smoking areas, casino, mistakenly walked thru smoke deck uggg, try to avoid.

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

5 out of 5
This could be a 2 day stop. Could do on site activities. The sand was like silk, have to rent umbrellas if you can’t take the sun. Towels on site.

Grand Turk Island

3 out of 5
Crowded as other ship had been there most of a.m. didn’t know there were designated umbrellas for our ship. Get there early.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

5 out of 5
Lots of chairs, have to rent umbrellas if you can’t take sun, some shady spots. Great zip line value.
