Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Guy's burgers was amazing! The buffet had some good options in the beginning just not so much the last few days. The dining rooms had good options but small portions.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
My family enjoyed bingo, miniature golf, chess, the serenity deck as well as many other activities such as comedy shows and live music. Most times the hot tubs were full and losing heat cause of the amount of people in them. Overall we had a great experience.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
DJ Randy J, Leon, Crissy and other performers kept the ships energy very high the entire time not a dull moment. Excellent staff they worked well as a team providing entertainment

Children's Programs

Minor children were not in my party

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
My room steward Faruk was outstanding, always had a smile, lending a hand, opening doors and if you needed him just sing his name and he was steps away. We did not meet one unpleasant staff member onboard.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Everything on the ship was easily accessible, the common areas were cleaned and well maintained around the clock, the maintenance team stayed busy cleaning and maintaining the appearance of the ship

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
So spacious, clean, well maintained, comfortable and conveniently located to entertainment, food and bars. The view from the deck was amazing.

Ports of call

Tampa, Florida

Beautiful scenery, eatery's and polite people a great town to tour.

George Town, Grand Cayman

3 out of 5
The excursions meeting point wasn't clear but asking around helped me get to the right place. The excursions was delayed for an hour they way the excursions staff communicated the delay was via text unacceptable for travelers without text capabilities. Once we got going the glass bottom boat tour was beautiful, the staff did a good job. I would like to have had more time in port to site see

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
My favorite port, I would liked to have had more time to do more things. Our tour at discovery Mexico Park was amazing, our tour guide Bryan was knowledgeable and passionate about his job. Amazing tour and authentic cuisine provided my mama at the park.

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
Quick, simple and very well organized.
