Wasn't overly impressed, more like a small town theater shows. Was 1st cruise back so maybe just out of practice. Do really enjoy comedy shows

Standard cruise cabin, nice

Ship tip

Lots of free lunch options other than buffet. Try them all

Ports of call

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

4 out of 5
Beautiful island, but no free shade. Be prepared to pay for shade, if you want it. Also know that drink packages do not carry over onto private island...

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

4 out of 5
