This ship was great. Its huge. The gym was excellent. The room was super spacious with enough room for 6 yet it was only 3 of us. The staff was all excellent and the food was delicious.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Dining was great. 24 hour ice cream and frozen yogurt. Doesnt get much better than that. I recommend the new york deli with the pastrami and corned beef on ciabata bread. Excellent every time.

The club could use some better dj's but I blame that on the fact that Im from miami. They ended up playing the cha cha slide multiple times on the same night and older dance music. would have liked to hear more hip hop and reggae. It is a cruise to the carribean after all. DJ Florin was pretty good.

The crew was cleaning 24 hours a day. If there was more time in the day they would keep cleaning.

Size was pretty darn big. Everything was always clean. I found a penny under the bed but it doesnt mean they didnt clean as much as possible,

Must rent a scooter as soon as you get there and drive around the whole island for 35 bucks for the day. Go to albertsons and buy some supplies for the boat like water and soda. Go to Big Johns pizza for some great pizza. Try the stuffed pizza. One slice is more than enough. Go to margarittavile for a pina colada and conch friiters. And dont forget to visit the white street pier. Its nice and good for fishing at times.

You must go to isla passion on the twister speed boat. Awesome excursion. I cant wait to go back for the open bar, fresh guacamole, and super quiet pristine beach. Oh yeah and the boat ride is awesome. Dont forget to ask for more twisters. And yes you will get soaked but under that nice hot sun you want nothing else.
Don't Miss: Isla Passion and three amigos bar and grill.

Pros: food was great..service was great...boat was awesome

Cons: all of the ice cream dispensers should have strawberry..
