Review summary

Despite a few setbacks, like crew member getting sick and ship having to turn away from port of call and later on the last day of cruisethere was a fire on board, wefeltlike it was handled professionaly and in the best interest and safety of all that are on board cruisers and crew. Things like this can happen anywhere let alone on a floating city. We had a great time and would do it again in a heart beat.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
I have food alergies, to nightshade vegetables in perticular. It was hard to find right food besides the dining room for dinner and even than it was pretty limeted. I wish there was things like sweet potatoes for carb option instead of white rice, also veggies like brussle sprouts, kale, asparagus...Portions were a great size. Couldn't eat anything of the buffet besides roasted meats and coleslaw. Pizza and burgers were great as well.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
There was a wide variety of activities but all we cared about was relaxing in the sun during the day. Wish that Serenity deck is bigger. It was a bit rediculous that people stood in line waiting for a chair while the ones who had a chair would walk away for an hour to go eat lunch. Also I saw underage girls with parents who took 3 chairs and no one said anything.

Entertainment was offthe hook. Deon is amazing cruise director. Hanging with him was the best part. Everyone was super talented and made the cruisethat much better.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Rupa was a great cabin stewardess, very positive and always smiling. The room could have been a bit cleaner. There is a lot of panneling in the room that showes every smudge. It lookd like it wasn't whiped down in a long while. The waiter T at our dining table 390 Ecstasy dining room was excellent. He made sure my food was always right because of my allergies. The bartenders at the Alchemy bar and Atrium bar were awesome Lana, Vladimir, Adrian, Maria, Nenad from Atrium I belive was his name....great personality.

Very tight space comparing to Triumph or Victory, wouldnt call it Junior sweet, rathera room with balcony.

Ship tip

Overlook the outdated design and small rooms and get ready to have fun with Deon and the entertainment crew

Beautiful port, had some great food and shopping. Wish we found a good beach to hang out on. Time in port was very short.

Cozumel, Mexico Did not visit port

Due to crew illness we never went to Cozumel. Cozumel was reason we booked this cruis but we do understand the change of plan. Persons life is more important
