Review summary

Simon London was the best Cruise Director we've ever had. The Fun Squad was fantastic and our overall experience was outstanding. We would do this cruise again. Thank YOU!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Excellent food and service. Prime Steakhouse did take a long time, though. We were trying to make a couple of events but couldn't because of the extended time it took. BUT...the food and the service was second to none.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We did pools, trivia, hot tubs, movie nights, murder mystery

Mostly it was awesome. However, the singers were not the best we've heard. Also, there was a technical difficulty with the Flick Show and we clearly did not get the full experience.

So much fun. We swam with stingrays and they were excellent.

Grand Turk Island

5 out of 5
We did the two-coast snorkel and the workers were amazing. They were very patient with my 7-year old as she was very scared to get in. But she says this was her favorite

Oranjestad, Aruba

5 out of 5
We did the Jeep tour. It was an incredible experience that I am still paying for (I'm so sore!). Danny, our guide, was the best there is and I only wish I could hang out with him more. Aruba was my favorite of the ports. I would like to go spend more time there.

Willemstad, Curacao

5 out of 5
Curacao was great and our favorite beach. We did beach and snorkel. Great snorkeling and beautiful beaches


4 out of 5
This was the slowest part of the experience (to be expected). We were delayed because they couldn't keep up with everyone. However, they were all working really hard
