Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Plenty of choices for everyone in our family. My wife and son especially liked blue iguana. Guys pig and anchor we’re good. The pizza is always good. Guys burger was delicious. My wife like the Italian restaurant she said that The lasagna great. He did look like the menu in the dining rooms were lacking from my other cruise so I didn’t go.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
I was never bored. Seem to find something to do all the time even know we had an extra sea day when we didn’t go to grand Turk. Some of the shows like flick wasn’t that good but it still was entertaining they butchered some of the songs I still had a good time though. Comedy shows were great.

Entertainment was good even though some shows were subpar they were still entertaining one was so bad you had to laugh. Simon the cruise director was awesome along with London bear.

Always greeted with a friendly face hello how are you doing how was your day. The room was always cleaned everybody seemed very responsive although sea days it was a little tough to get a drink. 😂🥳

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Yes the ship was old I didn’t really see a whole Lotta rust to tell you the truth. It always being cleaned. The layout of the ship was fine I had no problems with it once you got used to things I felt it was easy to get around.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We always choose an interior room prices better I don’t spend much time in it except for sleeping. The only issue the room was one of the drop-down beds from the ceiling squeaking a lot on rocky nights.

My wife said last time if we come again we can go to the fort’s she didn’t think we were coming back.😂😂😂 It was also the day after the 6.4 earthquake only affects we saw were a few generators running.
