Overall experience of our first cruise was great and relaxing. We enjoyed ourselves, more than my husband thought he would, the food was always very good, and the staff was friendly and helpful at all times. The only complaint was the rough seas on our last day on board.

Cabin / Stateroom
It was clean when we checked in. Raymond took care of our cabin and did a good job of cleaning it and putting fresh towels everyday.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
It took an hour to get on the ship and it would be nice if there was a way to make getting on board a shorter time.
Ship Quality
The ship was very clean at all times.
Destinations and Excursions
We did 3 excursions which we enjoyed but would like to have had more time on the excursions.
Onboard Activities
We really enjoyed the movies on the Big Screen TV. We also enjoyed the entertainment in the Burgundy Room and the Comedy Room.
Service and Staff
All the staff was very friendly and very helpful at all times. We ate dinner at the Crimson Dining Room and our waiters, Alexander, Ari, and ? were the best waiters! We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and these waiters made our night special by singing Happy Anniversary to us!!
Food and Dining
We liked having a selection of different foods to choose from. All of the food was very good!
New Orleans, Louisiana
Montego Bay, Jamaica
Oman was our bus driver (bus 6), and was friendly and informative. We took the Top 10 Best of Montego Bay excursion. This tour was nice but seemed rushed and we never stopped to take photos.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Nelson was our bus driver (bus 17), and was very friendly and informative. We took the Explore Cayman By Land and Sea excursion. We really enjoyed the semi-submarine tour! Just not enough time at each stop we made, 15 minutes is not enough to really enjoy the stops.
Cozumel, Mexico
We took the All Inclusive Passion Island By Power Catamaran excursion and this was the nicest excursion of all. The boat ride to the island and back was loads of fun. Leo was our guide and very friendly, informative, and took great care of us. The Island is beautiful, food and drinks were great.
