We arrived in our appointment window, breezed through the security process, and walked right onboard. Easy peasy!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Every night in the MDR our service and food were both excellent, the buffet and all the venues we tried (Blue Iguana, Guy's, Pizza Pirate, breakfast buffet) were outstanding.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
The Bingo was excellent! Kim (the Queen of Bingland) is a great caller. The trivia and all the activities were well organized and well led.

We caught the Playlist cast on the last week of their contract, and they were spectacular! The best we've seen to date. The Cats violin trio was amazing.

Service and Staff

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Interior cabin was smaller than we are used to, but the layout was good. The only problem we had was noise from the Red Frog below us, but that was usually over by 11:00 pm

Ship tip

Relax, and don't be looking for things to complain about.

Gumbalimba Park with the birds and monkeys! Great. Beach was rained out, but still a worthwhile excursion.

We didn't actually "disembark", but the B2B turnaround was handled quickly.
