Review summary

One of my only complaint was how expensive the pictures were, had a group of 8 people so had many pictures and the prices were just outrageous to purchase more than one photo for budget. My favorite part was getting to take all the pictures, but the packages and individual prices were way too much when considering what I spent on mine and my partners cruise already. Also prices of beers too expensive

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Food was phenomenal. Never disappointed in a meal except the breakfast burritos at Blue Iguana were cold. Wish the lunch food was open later at the stations for those late risers that get a late start on breakfast. Drinks always good and drink service by Gusti was the best, had our groups name down by the first day, always quick and great drinks. Did not like that drinks had the gratuity added to them already in the bill.

Onboard Activities

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Gusti-bar, Zubin, Sam, and Francisco were amazing waiters for dinner, could not have asked for a better dining experience, cannot remember room stewards name, but always helpful knowing if other memebers in the group had left our room, always said hi, room was always so neat and loved the towel animals

Dirty, did a private tour of duns river falls, as always never enough time to get to places and explore the island with short on and off the islands, people on the island very pushy, shoving items in your face/asking for money

George Town, Grand Cayman
