Review summary

This was our first cruise and the ages of our party were 53, 22 and 18. The activities were appropriate for these age groups. The comedy club was entertaining. The app and What's Happening was a great way to keep informed on ship activities.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Cabin Steward Bjorn did a fantastic job of taking care of 3 people in our room. He knew our names, was always checking on us, was responsive to any requests, and his work was very appreciated. Normandie Restaurant wait staff: Muran, Tessa, Imade were so helpful in responding to our dining needs but also preparing us for the next day's activities, particularly Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay and Freeport. All 3 of the wait staff were knowledgeable about the ship, activities and made recommendations when we asked. We had members of our party who were perpetually late for dinner and they were very patient and understanding.

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

Did not have much interest in this island. Just browsed in the shops outside ship. The time there was not expansive enough to want to go on an excursion.
