Ship experiences

Food and Dining

The first night the food was just okay. The quality and taste improved as the cruise went on.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We wanted to take some of the fitness classes but they only had very early classes and the room was rather cold.

as an ex-performer the shows were OK, but you have to keep in mind you are on a moving ship. would like to have seen and actually full Broadway type of performance.

Service and Staff

Ship Quality

The only draw back was the casino (because of the smoking) A lot of activity was on the same floor and the smoke would flow into the same area.

Cabin / Stateroom

The Size, was great, the cleanliness was good and GioDana was very attentive to all our needs.

Booked excursion locally, this was perfect for the wife and I because we were able to shape our excursion to see and do what we wanted to do.

Bridgetown, Barbados

3 out of 5
booked the panoramic view of Barbados tour. A little disappointing because we arrived on Sunday and everything was shutdown. Plus, the bus had very small seats, not very comfortable.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

One of my favorite island book the Golden Eagle tour. Great fun, snorkeling was good but the gear fogged up fast. The beach was nice but small.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

4 out of 5
Nice excursion called favorites of San Juan. the driver was very knowledgeable and took the time to point out key sites and points of interest.

Grand Turk Island

4 out of 5
booked and excursion once we arrived. Small island but knowledgeable driver. He made the excursion worth the money. The beaches were the best part of this island.
