Review summary

Great cruise, friendly, helpful staff except for Bingo caller (her majesty). There is a bar b que restaurant on the 10th floor (walk up the stairs from level 9). The food is fabulous and free. Very few people know where the Bar B que restaurant is , so you can have your pick of the chicken, beef or sausage and tables.

The comedians were great. The lady calling the bingo games needs to be replaced, her majesty was what she wanted to be called.

Ship Quality

The windows in the Lido were very dirty when we arrived on our cruise. Tom mentioned it to a staff person and he explained that windows could on be cleaned if the island allowed the cleaning.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our cabin met my preferences. I wanted a room in the middle of the ship and on a low deck since I get seasick. For the first cruise we were on deck 2, for the second cruise we were on deck 1. I did not have any problems with motion sickness, even when the waves were quite high.

Ship tip

Forget adding a meal to your tour at the Turtle farm. The LIDO was much better than the island fare.

Ports of call

Galveston, Texas

5 out of 5
Galveston has some impressive architecture. We attended mass at St. Patrick's church and admired the stained glass windows.

Montego Bay, Jamaica

4 out of 5
The rafting on the Big River was great. The journey man was able to steer clear of any protruding rocks. The bus ride to the river was terrible. The roads are in poor condition and the driver has to honk every time he gets to a curve to avoid oncoming cars.

George Town, Grand Cayman

4 out of 5
We did the turtle farm trip. Everything was very interesting. We saw children swimming in a small area with small turtles. The only drawback is the food at the bar/restaurant at the Turtle farm

Cozumel, Mexico Did not visit port

We had been there often and the walk to to the terminal was too long.


5 out of 5
We were able to wait in the restaurant until our blue tag was called. We were able to get through customs in record time.
