Our room was an exterior one with port hole view. Room was very comfortable, clean and well attended to.

Food on this cruise was better than a previous cruise, waiters were very attentitive, and ensured that our needs were met.

Onboard activities were well spaced out, with time to get to various activities.The family shows were well thought out and content was suited for teens and children.

The final show on the last night was a winner. The cast and voices were extremely talented, and took pride in the presentation of it.

The excession to Coszmel was very enlightning with the Island and the people,would have liked more time to explore the ruins. The water was beautiful as well as the beaches and rock formations. Had an excellent meal in a Spanish home and toured a Tequela factory with taste of various brands.

The stop in Grand Cayman, started with getting wet on the small boat ride to shore. The rain was unexpected, but once dried off and the rain stopped, our visit to the turtle farm, and a unique visit to Hell was very good. Had an excellent meal at a local restruant and it was time to return to the ship.

Food aboard the ship again was excellent, many choices on the Ledo Deck,and our evening meals at our dining room. Could drink the ship waterand did not need bottled water with the meals.

This curise compared to the one to the Bahamas, was a far better experience for the entire family.

The entire crew went out of their way to ensure we were well taken care of.

We will definitely look forward another cruise.

View out the port holes was excellent, and big enough to sit in and look out. Room was very nice and clean and fresh daily.

Ship Tip

Top deck to bask in the sun, Fantail to watch the sunsets.
A Table with a window view at night, with another ship off to the side of you. Prettu lights.

Tampa, Florida Did not visit port

Was easy to get to, Local parking to and from the Parking Doctors went quickly. Customs was easy to get in and out of.

Customs was good in getting us on and off the ship, a nice walk to the center to catch our excursion

Was not told the port had no dock, and a boat would take us from ship to shore & return to the Ship later.
