Great time on cruise

Sail Date: June 18, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship has very clean and had a very pleasant crew.

Pros: fun and relaxing

Cons: early dining

Ship Quality
Ship was very clean for the most part. Some of the public bathrooms ran out of soap; however room was kept very clean.
Food and Dining
Excellent variety of food throughout the day; however try to get a late dining time because 1st sitting can be too early and makes you in a hurry to get back to ship.
Cabin / Stateroom
I thought our rooms were very clean and extremely comfortable. The bathroom was kept very clean by staff every day.
Service and Staff
Most of the serving staff is very friendly and from many parts of the world which made my trip very interesting. Cruise director very funny.
Fun tours and activities on the ship
Children's Programs
lots of activities for younger kids and older kids but not many for teens 16-17 late at night.
Grand Turk Island
Sign up for tours early because they fill up very fast and there is not much else to do except go to the beach or hang out at the pool.
Don't Miss: Ocean tour - Island not very big so take advantage of the ocean
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Old San Juan is an interesting old and interesting city. People are very friendly.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
not too much time spent on the Island and had to leave early because it started to rain.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
very pretty Island with many nice places to shop and eat. Beautiful sand very enjoyable snorkeling tour.
