Service and Staff

We had the BEST wait staff ever. Francisco, Nyoman, and Ketut we're awesome. They made us laugh and made made us feel comfortable the entire trip. My sisters have celiac and with Francisco we never had to worry about them being contaminated.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
The ship was clean. It was in pretty good condition except for a couple spots in the carpet. The worst thing about the ship was the casino with the smoking. The casino was in the middle of the ship so you had to walk through it to get from one side to the other. The smell was horrible. You could smell the smoke in the lobby on the 3rd floor. You could smell it in the ocean plaza so we couldn't sit and play cards.

We went out on a catamaran and went snorkeling in Turtle cove with castaway girl. We saw turtles, sting Ray's, and fish of all kinds. So much fun!

San Juan, Puerto Rico

2 out of 5
There were 3 ships in Port at the same time so it was super busy. It was rainy and so hot and humid. We got back on the ship and swam in the pool.
