Review Summary

This being our first cruise and not comparing to a previous cruise, we were able to enjoy the the entire ship. Avoiding at times the areas that were crowded, and participating in activities at leisure. Boarding and disembarking at each destination was flawless, Shore activites were plentifull, weather participating in an excursion or wandering off.

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

3 out of 5
A drive through the rain forest is amazing. Bamboo Beach is not an attractive location nor should it be considered a worthwhile beach.
Don't Miss: The rain forest

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
7 Mile Beach. Get out to the beach and do not leave until you must.
Don't Miss: The amazing beach.

Pros: The warmth and attention of the staff throughout the cruise

Cons: Crowded top deck
