Review summary

We were very pleased on our first cruise. I don't think I would change anything about it except learning the ship a little faster.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Yusep was amazing. He always called us by name and made sure we had what we needed. Everytime we left the room in the morning he had our room cleaned in no time. We always had great dining room wait staff as well.

Ship Quality

Walking around the ship, there are always people cleaning. The bathrooms were surprisingly clean all the time!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our cabin was great. It was very roomy.

Ship tip

We didnt discover the piano bar until the next to last night. We would have probably went almost every night if we had found it sooner. Scott was great!

We walked around on our own here and went to the Zoo. It was nice.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

5 out of 5
We 100% recommend the mountain sites excursion. We decided to do it last minute and are so glad we did. It was breathtaking up on top looking out and walking through the gardens.

Grand Turk Island

5 out of 5
We booked our own private excursion and toured the island. We went to Governor's beach also.


5 out of 5
It was smooth and great except I left my phone in the cabin and had to wait 45 minutes for someone to bring it down, but considering they were all doing jobs and were nice enough to stop to bring my phone, I was grateful.
