Review summary

Overall, most of the ladies in my party had a good time. Some of the ports were nice. The food in the MDR was really good. Lido Marketplace needs more variety, although the grilled cheese was awesome. Sometimes getting ice there was a problem. The ship was nice. The staff was really good. The cruise director was priceless.

I found it a bit unorganized, especially with the two new travelers I had with me. Very confusing

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

I would have rated 5 stars but I found the limited hours for Guys Pig and Anchor annoying

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
No pool on Serenity deck just not acceptable and the main pool way to small for the amount of passengers.

I didn't care for the comedian named Washington at all.Seems he just slammed people, not very funny. Need more karaoke in the evening not at 4:30.

Ship Quality

very clean, not crazy about walking through the smokey casino to get to the other side of the boat...

it was very roomy considering we had 4 people in it...It was kept clean and the balcony was very nice

Ship tip

be prepared to wait in line for just about everything.

surprisingly it was very cool, took a 2 hour tour and it was very informative. We had an awesome tour guide. Very pretty.

shopping was awesome as usual.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

Did not enjoy at all. The people hosting our excursion were rude, we ending up getting off the bus before it left. He made it very clear money was far more important than the passengers. I found the other people to be rude as well and not very helpful. It was up hill nearly every where we went. Could not get information/direction from shop owners.

Grand Turk Island

5 out of 5
Maybe the bluest water I have seen. We hung out at Margaritaville and had a great time...can't wait to go back. Shopping was good and all the shops are at port so you feel safe.
