Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Had dinner in the dining room every night, Yonathan our head waiter along with two other servers were wonderful, they made it a very enjoyable experience. We tried the buffet the first day for lunch, I didn’t like any of it. Tried it a couple of times after that but it wasn’t my cup of tea and luckily there were other choices.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We had a good time playing mini golf with our son and daughter in law, they also had a great time riding the air bikes. My husband and I enjoyed walking the fitness trail.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
We watched a musical show, once in a theater and another time on a staircase, they were very talented singers. The comedians were very good, there were two, the first one was very funny, we laughed so much. The second comedian, Lowell Saunders had us laughing so hard we were crying, we went to see him multiple times.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our room steward Anthony kept our room very clean, he made himself available for whatever we needed and made us feel so special every day! Our wait staff was great, Yonathon and the other two waiters were very attentive and accommodating, they made dinner time fun.

Cabin / Stateroom

We thoroughly enjoyed our cabin, it was very clean and Anthony was a great steward. We really liked the towel animals every day. Bathroom was clean and stocked with all necessities and our balcony was comfortable and clean.

Ship tip

Don’t have any expectations, don’t miss the comedy show.

Ports of call

Cozumel, Mexico

3 out of 5
We didn’t do any excursions, to rent a car for just the day was $100, a bit steep for 6 hrs. We walked around for several hours, did lots of shopping but must confess the high pressure put on by shopkeepers that practically chased you outside to get you to come back in got pretty uncomfortable.

George Town, Grand Cayman

4 out of 5
We did a bus tour and had a good time, the bus driver gave us a lot of information about where we were and what we would see, lots of local information too. I would suggest if you do a bus tour go with a bus that has Wi-Fi. We stopped and shopped at Hell, Grand Cayman, if you bring your passport they will stamp it for you. Also enjoyed the dolphin encounter, the show was over but it was still fun to watch them for a bit.

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

3 out of 5
Be wary of non-sanctioned excursions. We walked around port and did a little light shopping before heading back to the ship. Our son and daughter in law had a great time when they rode the bobsled.

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
It went pretty fast, we were on floor #11. Calling on floors to get off the ship makes it difficult to let someone know what time to be there to pick you up.
