Review summary

This was a great cruise. Very clean ship with friendly staff. The new elevators could be frustrating at times. Havana area was very quiet. I would get a cabin there again.

The steakhouse good was superb. The food in the dining room was fine. We ate lunch at Cucina delCapitano and the food was quite bland.

Liquid Lounge

They need more seating in there. With 4600 passengers, there isn't enough seats for people in there.

First time we came away ahead of the game. Seemed like the slots were loose.

Beauty Salon

Went to have my hair fixed for formal night. Employee was nice and did a good job, but was annoying. She kept trying to push services on me.

Ship Quality

Ship was clean and easy to navigate

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had an extended aft balcony. It was part of the Havana cabins. Would highly recommend this.

Ship tip

I would definitely recommend carrying off your pan luggage. The carousel is a mess and takes a long time to get you're luggage. At least it did for us.

Ports of call

La Romana, Dominican Republic

We did a dune buggy excursion. It was very scary to me, but everyone else loved it.

Debarkation was great, but waiting 45 minutes for our luggage was annoying
