Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The main dining room food was great. The breakfast buffet was great but the lunch buffet was not to my liking maybe some other people liked it I just didn’t like the selections they had. The deli was very good. Love the grilled cheese sandwiches and the hot Dogs were amazingly very tasty.

Onboard Activities

Activities were so so. We mainly hit the pools and hung out in the serenity area.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The ship was pretty nice. And I noticed a lot of the constantly cleaning hand rails and public area restrooms

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Our cabin was very nice and cozy. The beds are so comfortable that we didn’t want to get out of bed.

Ship tip

The Casino is not the place to be if you are not a smoker it’s very smoky and hard to breath in there.

Ports of call

Tampa, Florida Did not visit port

Got on ship right away

Puerto Limon, Costa Rica

1 out of 5
The excursion was good but the area was very dirty and it looked very poor and not to safe to walk around

Panama Canal Transit

3 out of 5
Panama Canal was ok but I got bored with it very quickly. Overrated

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
Gran cayman is one of my favorite islands to visit. It’s beautiful and very clean and I felt safe walking around. Highly recommend
