Ship experiences

Food and Dining

OMG!!! The food was delicious! From the diningroom to the Buffet and Guys Burgers or the deli or salad bar.......it was delicious!!!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Bingo, Deck party, comedy club, casino, all of the shows..... Enjoyed them all. Just would add another pool because this one got pretty crowded.

All shows were awesome!!! Very talented bands, singers & dancers. Very entertaining.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Chris (the friendly neighborhood cruise director) is HILARIOUS, full of energy and just what every ship needs. Brad from Bingo (and a few other things because he seemed to be Chris' sidekick) was also a plus for this cruise. Esperanza our cabin steward I can't say enough about.... she's not only top notch on her job but she's so nice and friendly and always greets with a smile.

Ship Quality

Everything was always clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The only reason this did not get a 5 star rating was because we had an issue with the air and an issue with a curtain which would not close. (Not everyone in my cabin was early risers but the sun coming directly in that curtain made them be)

Ship tip

Do everything you can while your on the boat. Don't sit in the front row of any comedy show...lol

Ports of call

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

3 out of 5
We took a taxi around the area. Was not impressed with the pushiness of the locals. Did not like all of the garbage thrown everywhere on the ground. Not interested in going back to the Dominican. The port itself was good.

Grand Turk Island

Absolutely Beautiful. We stayed right in Port and enjoyed a beautiful beach and sang and swam at Margarittaville for hours. Great shopping here to!
