Ship experiences

Food and Dining

The buffet was crowded and closed when "late diners " wanted to eat. The staff would even close the buffet with people in line and food still available.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Very clean for the most part. We did have some navigational challenges and would have appreciated the announcements in our stateroom, since you have to open your door to hear them, otherwise.

Very nice. Roomy. The cleaning staff was super good and helpful and friendly.

Ship tip

Book excursions or get one right at the Port when you get off the ship (cheaper)! Take advantage of being in a new place and see as much as possible without feeling rushed! We did the Deluxe Catamaran sail and snorkel, the excursion hosts (Fury) were great!
