Review summary

Enjoyed the cruise itself. The seas were a little rough for most of the trip. Our only complaint, and a complaint of many guests, was the smell of marijuana that would fill our room almost hourly. They addressed it right away with warning letters, but no action was ever taken. I also wasn't very happy that the best seats on the deck were for the smokers

Very boring. We were the only ship at port and it was very boring. Nothing to do there but swim in the pool and zip line. We didn't book any excursions. The shopping was horrible, typical tourist crap

Grand Turk Island

Still ended up having to rent an umbrella and seats. Not very many open free seats or umbrellas
