Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was not the best. Way too much fried food at the buffets! Dinners were pretty good. There were better choices at dinner and the quality was higher than the buffets.


3 out of 5
Entertainment was ok.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Very helpful and very friendly.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The ship could use some updating. It looked worn. Although everything was very clean and well maintained.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our stateroom was actually bigger than we expected. We also had a very pleasant balcony. Always very clean.

Ports Of Call

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
The beaches and the scuba diving are a must. The "wall" for diver's is unique.

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

5 out of 5
Of course, climbing Dunns River Falls is a must.

Pros: Perfect weather

Cons: Ship was Packed-long lines for everything
