We loved the ship. I got a bit nervous before we left because I saw some negative reviews. It was fabulous! We loved all the fhe islands. The staff was great! We hated leaving the pool to get ready for early dinner. That's the ony thing that we would change. I would recommend second seating if you like to hang out at the pool after going on an excursion.
Don't miss the shopping info if you plan on shopping!
The pool and waterfall were too crowded in Dominica.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The staff were incredible! We barely needed to order drinks. The drink steward knew what we wanted. The amount of food was just right. We had appetizers, salad, main meal, and dessert every day and walked away full. If you have a sweet tooth, be sure to visit Cafe on the way for the cakes!

The not-so-newly wed game was hysterical! Deal or no-Deal was great! Even Destiny idol was fabulous. The winner was better than the "professional" singer on Monday night. The Destiny dancers were good if you like seeing someone's thong (etc).

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Everyone we came in contact with was extremely friendly! The excursion desk help resolve an issue we had with our excursion.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The whole key to the ship is Deck 5. Go right to the Information desk and get a map! That will help you get around. Deck 5 is the only deck that you can get from one end of the ship to the other. It seemed like they were always cleaning somewhere on the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
They cleaned our room twice a day!! The rugs were washed each night. Clean towels twice a day. The room steward brought anything we wanted! They were fabulous!

Pros: All the ports of call

Cons: Mini Boats and Hidden Beaches - the boats stalled and wouldn't restart - skip this excursion!!!!
