Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The food was excellent this cruise. We had any-time dining, and some of our wait-staff was okay while others went above and beyond.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We really enjoy the shows, the deck parties, the Atrium trivia times, and the small competitions that we went to. Every thing was fun, entertaining, and awesome!!!

Entertainment was not lacking. They do an excellent job! Leon, the Cruise Director and the Fun Squad do an awesome job at keeping the entertainment going.

Children's Programs

No kids/teens.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our room steward, Mel was awesome! He always had a smile on his face and was happy to greet us. He kept the room and our needs taken care of. We really enjoyed getting to know him. Our photographer, Chutima (spelling?) was awesome. She made us feel like family. She kept us giggling while taking the most incredible pictures of us. Our wait staff was good. We had any-time dining, so we had someone different each night. There were two waiters that stood out and gave us excellent service. One of them was Orlando, and I’m not sure about the other one. But he worked near Orlando.

Ship Quality

This ship is always clean!!!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Mel always kept our cabin clean. It’s small but comfortable because we are only in there to sleep. The least favorite part is the I had to sleep up against the wall, which made it awkward to get up in the middle of the night. I wished that the beds could have been turned with the head up against the wall. I didn’t ask if it was possible though.

Ship tip

Take a light jacket if you get chilly easily. They keep it cool; which is better to be cool than hot.

Ports of call

Charleston, South Carolina

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

5 out of 5
This place was absolutely amazingly beautiful! We did not do any excursions, but I would have loved to take a tour through the country side!

Grand Turk Island

5 out of 5
Again, this place had the most amazing beautiful beach that I have ever seen. I do wish I had brought my water goggles so I could have seen some gorgeous tropical sea life.

Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island)

3 out of 5
The island is beautiful. The tender boat ride to the island is not that great. It takes a lot of time.

We carried our luggage off so we were on our way by around 7:30 or so. Everything went well.
