Review summary

1St time cruise! I loved the service staff, they seemed genuinely happy to be there and create great memories for us. The only people that were not great were the Art Auctioneers. They were tricky and judgmental. The art was also pretty terrible, they were not very straightforward about what most people would consider “original” work, and printed work.

Ship tip

You can order more then one option for dinner/ appetizers etc! You also do not need to bring beach towels for excursions. You are allowed to use the ones in your room.

Nothing special

Nassau, Bahamas

4 out of 5
Very commercial, but still interesting. It was a little uncomfortable with joe much the locals pressure you to buy things.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

5 out of 5
Absolutely stunning. The locals were also amazing!

Grand Turk Island

3 out of 5
It’s shameful how poorly the English have treated this island. They are in need of money to repair from natural disaster. Also, the goods and services are very pricey due to having no natural resources to speak of.

It was extremely delayed. We had to stand waiting for over an hour, and had to wait another hour before that (outside of our room.
