This was our first cruise, not sure what to expect. We were blown away and look forward to booking another cruise next year. From the greeters at theport to the room cleaners, resteraunt staff and everyone in between, always smiling and always wanting to make us feel at home..... better yet makeing us feel like royalty, better than home.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
I gained 11 pounds, need I say more. Next time we will opt for the early self seating dining option. It will fit better into ourplans. Late seating made it difficult for early plans the following morning.

Enjoyed the PG rated comedy show. The Beatles tribute was very entertaining as well.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff was the finest group of people I have ever encountered. They seem to love what they do and seek to make the guests feel at home. They all go above and beyond, especially by the standards of the "union" workers in the states.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5

Dunns river falls. Guides carried my NON waterproof camera. It would have been ruined because you will get soaked and submerged. They also made a DVD of our hike up the falls. We were very surprised of the quality. We were afraid that we had lost the $40 dollars. But is a very great value and will bring back great memories for years to come. Also dolphin Cove Beach bash. Very nice great food and great shops. Next time we will swim with the Dolphins.
Don't Miss: Dunn River Falls

Pros: Cleanliness of ship

Cons: Late seating for dining
