Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We ate breakfast and brunch in the dining rooms and other than a slight wait it was awesome! We also ate dinner in the dining room which was delish and fun! Guys Burgers, Pizza, Deli and Blue Iguana was great for lunch! We never used the buffet but the area seemed plentiful and clean! Ice cream machines were broken and repaired daily which is to be expected with that many people!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Water slides, putt-putt, ping pong and corn hole were a hit for our kiddos!

Our room steward Marvin was great! He kept our room neat and fully stocked and checked on us any time he saw us! Our wait staff was amazing as well! Always eager to please us! Any time we saw ship personnel they always spoke and smiled!

Perfect for my family of four! Linens soft and beds comfortable! Bathroom was great and the shower pressure is amazing!

Ship tip

Keep in mind she is an older smaller ship with some showing of age but she doesn't disappoint! Sit back, relax and cruise!

Ports of call

Charleston, South Carolina

Beautiful historic town!

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

5 out of 5
One of our favorites! Second year in a row we have visited "MaMa" at La Casa En La Playa and there is no other excursion for us! They treat you just like family!

Grand Turk Island

5 out of 5
Beautiful beaches with great snorkeling! Grab some cereal from the buffet to feed the fish while you snorkel but be sure to have your underwater camera ready! Also good shopping for souvenir's!

Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island)

5 out of 5
Beautiful water but a bit rocky so have shoes handy!

We were off the ship with luggage, checked by port authority, picked up by our shuttle and then driving in our vehicle within 35 minutes!
