This was an amazing way to spend our Christmas holiday. My family loved their first cruise vacation. We loved each of the islands we visited and had amazing weather. We are looking forward to going on another family cruise.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Most of the meals were very good. The Guy Fieri Burger joint, Blue Iguana, 24 Hr pizza was awesome. We tried the breakfast buffet and sit down breakfast and they were also very good. The Sit down dinners were very good most nights but some nights the selection and quality was just ok.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We enjoyed all the game shows and got hooked on Bingo. There was something going on at all times of the day.

Our family enjoyed all the shows put on by the entertainers. The Epic 80's show was our favorite along with the Rock show.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our Steward, Gustavo, made us feel at home the entire week. The room was well taken care of and we enjoyed seeing our towel animals each day.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Everything was well maintained and clean. I think the décor looked a little out dated.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The room was very comfortable for the time we spent in it. We had a pull down bunk and it was comfortable for everyone in the cabin.

Ship tip

I would recommend to plan excursions for each of your destinations. It was nice to have planned events at each port we came to.

Willemstad, Curacao

We did the sea turtle snorkel and this was our favorite adventure. The kids has a blast at snorkeling in 2 locations on this island. The main street was great to walk to and do some shopping.

Oranjestad, Aruba

We loved the shopping we did on this island and ended up on eagle beach. Another great day.
