Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

Food was amazing. Disappointed that the cruiseline had NO Diet DP! That is my sofft drink of choice and I don't drink alcohol so I was pretty sad.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We were not really interested in a lot of these areas. We enjoyed sitting out on the open decks by the pools.

I took in all of the entertainment and loved the variety of entertainment. Loved 2country4nashville - VERY entertaining! Loved acoustic guitarist and soloist Paul. The brass group was super taleneted and fun. The violinists were amazging! The husband wife duo were very talented and was a pleasant music set. The rock group with a couple of volcalists were talented out the wazoo! Love how they the guitarist interacted with the audience.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Could not have asked for better service. In the fine dining breakfast area we felt misled due to difficultly communicating with wait staff. We asked specifically about the bloody mary's because no price was posted. we were led to believe they were complimentary.. They were not. Thy cost us $24 and we don't even drink. Only tried because they were complimentary.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Excellent in all regards. The deck hands were meticulous to keep everything clean and free of trash and dishes, etc.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Totally satisfied! Totally loved the balacony which was a first for us! Very very peaceful and relaxing!

Ship Tip

If at all physically challenged by all the walking, i would suggest getting a room closest to the elevators mid ship.

New Orleans, Louisiana

No issues.

Montego Bay, Jamaica Did not visit port

We had been forwarned about Jamaica and were glad to stay on the boat That evening we heard the story of a couple that were taken for about $250 and you could tell they really couldn't afford extra expenses.

George Town, Grand Cayman
