Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
I thought the food was decent. I was disappointed with the dining room times. Often I found the only food available was pizza and the lines for it were insane.


3 out of 5
Very few of the activities were interesting to me. The main showroom presentations were terrible. There were always enough things going on to keep me occupied though.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Most staff were very friendly. The wait staff at dinner and our stewards were especially good. Some bartenders were a little stand-offish and the casino had some less than friendly dealers, but otherwise good.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Reasonably happy with room. We had a stateroom which had a corner balcony. The balcony was awesome except that sometimes garbage and cigarette butts from levels above us would end up in our space.

Ports Of Call

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

3 out of 5
Good time. The zip excursion was a little too far away from the pier and left little time to explore the port, but I saw enough of Jamaica to know I want to go back.

Pros: Fun and friendly service

Cons: Nickel and diming for every single thing got tedious
