Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was abundant and the choices were great. I really enjoyed our main dining room experience especially our servers at table 114 who treated us to something special the last day of the cruise. Homemade chicken adobo.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
The on board activities were great. I really enjoyed the water slides and main deck pools. I wish i was able to experience a few more things but time didnt help us. As we planned too many things.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

We have visited Miami before.

Grand Turk Island

5 out of 5
We didn't do an excursion and mainly stayed on the beach. I would recommend heading to Jerk Shack a little ways down on the beach. Super friendly and the food is amazing. The drinks are even better.

La Romana, Dominican Republic

5 out of 5
We did an excursion with SeavisTours which was AMAZING!!!! From the speed boat to the rum in waist deep ocean waters to playing with sword fish, to all you can eat lunch and drinks on a secluded beach This excursion was by far a winner and would do it again.

Willemstad, Curacao

5 out of 5
The most beautiful of islands we visited. From the architecture to the cobble stone roads to Mambo Beach. Loved it!

Oranjestad, Aruba
