Great Number of Ports of Call

Sail Date: July 16, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Room Type: Oceanview

The stateroom was worn. Closets had big nicks and cracks...the shower smelled

Pros: Wonderful ports for snorkeling and family beach activities.

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Dining room was excellent, except for the first night. The food in the Tiffany (buffet) dining room was marginal.
Cabin / Stateroom
Other than the stateroom, the ship was well maintained and clean.
Service and Staff
Wait staff in dining room were friendly and tried to help by giving tips on the next day's port of call.
The dancers were excellent (and I hate dancing!)
Children's Programs
We never saw our teenage boys during the day....they always were at some activity.
Grand Turk Island
The reefs off of Grand Turk were absolutely outstanding for snorkeling.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
Great first port of call. Basically just a beach, but great swimming.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
We took the free trolley up to one fort, walked over to the other fort, and then made our way down the hill, through the shopping of old San Juan and back to the ship.
Don't Miss: Kite flying at the fort....I have never seen kites so high!!
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
We went over on our own to St. Johns...taxis are expensive at $10 per person per leg...and snorkeled at Trunk Bay.
