Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

We had the time of our lives, the days out at sea were perfect because any more would be too much and any less would be not enough, I loved how family oriented this ship was with the many activities and shops on board, it was nice to have breakfast with the family and let the kids go off every day to do their own thing without having to worry then meeting up for dinner and the evening movies brought us all back together again, views and excursions left us at awe as they were breathtaking, balcony room is a must


Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin was larger than I expected, it was still cozy and balcony view was amazing
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Being our 1st time I didn't know what to expect but both getting on and off was very organized and quicker than i thought it would be
Ship Quality
I never once saw that something was out of order or not clean, the awesome staff does a great job making sure everything is perfect
Destinations and Excursions
I knew going to Jamaica that it was a poor country so expectations were not that high but the down to earth tour guide was great taking us to all locations and the scenery and beach were wonderful, Cayman Island was very expensive and mainly a tourist trap but it was the best excursion being in the water with the stingray and the water was crystal clear and once again the beach was great, Cozumel was our favorite and the private beach Nachicocum couldn't have been better, great locations
Onboard Activities
There was always something to do and see, if you were to get bored it is by choice not for a lack of something to do
Children's Programs
My 12yr old was not impressed and mainly hung out with others his age doing other activities, my 15yr old said it was ok however the more fun stuff was always too late for her to be out
Top of the line, never missed a beat, I was very impressed, there is alot of talent on board
Service and Staff
Savio and Roy were our waiters from day 1, we continued to request them for each and every breakfast and dinner as they gave awesome service, they were funny, kind and made it a point to learn our names and what we liked without us even requesting, because of ppl like them we will return..Our housekeeper who's name is can't remember was also so great, always smiling and making sure our rooms were cleaned several times per day and ice was always fresh
Food and Dining
Food and dining was top of the line with a variety of choices that we would pay alot of money for elsewhere, entertainment during dinner kept it fun
Galveston, Texas
Not impressed but the cruise makes up for it, rains alot and side roads flood
Montego Bay, Jamaica
Remember this is not a rich country, go and sightsee, embrace the culture and beauty
George Town, Grand Cayman
Have to do the Stingray excursion, it's a once in a lifetime moment
Cozumel, Mexico
Do a private all inclusive beach resort, relax, eat and drink, enjoy the last beach day related like royalty
