Room Type: Oceanview

Excellent entertainment - the Cruise director "Benjamin" was very energetic.  Always something to do.  Staff - absolutely amazing!  Always cleaning - smiling - trying to help...I cannot believe how hard they work.  Food was excellent.  The formal dinners - very tasty and the buffet was wonderful as well.  Places where I could see improvement.  If you are a first timer - like myself'- and you like the formal dining option...if you want to get to a show on'll be rushing.  The times for the shows make it difficult to enjoy your dinner slowly if you chose late dining.  Other then that...wonderful experience!

Cruise Photos

Cabin / Stateroom
Our cabin actually had more space then I thought they had. I had read so many reviews about it being so small..but with some things we brought it was fine. The bed was very comfortable. Our cabin steward did a great job!
Embarkation and Disembarkation Make sure if you roll your own carry on out but are checking your bags for them to come grab that you label your carry on's as well...we almost lost a piece of luggage.
Ship Quality
Very clean...and the staff works constantly on keeping it that way. Vacuuming - wiping things down - keeping things dry with fans..excellent job!
Destinations and Excursions

Love the Grande Lucayan Resort for the day! Relaxing!


Brunch is available on Sea Days in one of the main dining areas. Motion sickness patches are avail from your doctor. If you like night life - opt for early dining so times don't interfere. Thank your staff and carry lots of singles for extra tipping..they work so very hard! Have fun!
