Review SummaryThe ship was relatively clean. Our room steward, Pedro, was a gem!
The fitness center was much better than I expected! I wish the jogging track were longer and the pools were bigger. The spa was nice though there was a big sales pitch to buy product at the end of treatment.
The excursions were hokey. We didn't book any but we saw some in action while we did our own thing. ie snorkeling with the rays. The poor animals were trapped a in waist deep enclosure while snorkelers chased them around the pen. This was neither a realistic animal encounter nor a good snorkeling outing.
Food and Dining
We ate in the buffets a couple times the asian style line was great! Healthy options were readily available.
We like the Game of Love with the 3 married couples. The comedians were so-so. We walked out on one of them.
For the excursions we did our own. We used Frommer's Ports of Call in the Carribean as a guide to find local scooter rentals, scuba shops, restaurants and other amentities. We saved money and had a more personally fulfilling experience.
Service and Staff
Several staff greeted us by name. The wait staff and hostesses were very pleasant.
I think these folks are probably overworked and underpaid??? They seemed to be on duty 24/7 and once we left the ship another cruise was leaving on the same ship later in the day with the same staff.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had everything we needed.
Ports of Call
Don't Miss: Walk on the beach.
Don't Miss: Use a local dive center. We used Grand Turk Divers.
Don't Miss: Get out on your own.
Don't Miss: The Fort
Pros: Ports of Call
