Review summary

Everything was great; outside of the panic attack of waiting for negative COVID test results 😂. I was slightly disappointed with the entertainment, it wasn’t as fun as I remembered. Overall the cruise was relaxing and fun.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Guys Burgers, Mongolian Wok and Sea Day Brunch were my favorites.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
DJ Nesta was amazing. The music was a perfect mix. The shows were not as great as past cruises. I miss the Hasbro Gameshow. I was certain we’d see one on a 6 day cruise. Also there was no white party as originally stated on the itinerary.

Service and Staff

Made was the best room attendant ever!!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Nice and clean. A lot of storage/closet space. The cove balcony is the best.

Ship tip

Like any cruise, get to the venues early enough for better seating.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

Not much to do in Port Canaveral; however we did stop at Disney Springs before heading home to Philadelphia. Also we had an excursion in Nassau (last minute itinerary change) we rode Segways at The Blue Lagoon Island. The staff were excellent and gave us a very informative tour of the island.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

5 out of 5
We booked Zip Lining, Horseback Riding and Lunch which also included a tour of the country side. The locals were really nice and waved as we drove through. The staff at Mega Adventures were great.

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

5 out of 5
We rented water bikes which were pretty cool. The water was AMAZING. I felt like we were in a resort pool.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
I didn’t feel rushed, the flow was smooth and easy. The staff was polite and helpful.
