Service and Staff

4 out of 5
The service and staff was exceptionally on point as well. I had one encounter where I was very disapointed in the the service that a gentlemen working in the deli provided. He was very nonchalant, had an attitude and forcefully placed my food on the counter and walked away. I stood there because I wanted fries with my sandwich and he avoided me while I stood there and waited. Another employee asked me if he could help me. I was very dissatisfied with this gentlemen. I did not get his name, but I should have.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
This was an older ship, but very well maintained and clean!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
My oceanview cabin was nice! The size was just right for 2. It was clean, but had a strong sour/wet smell. I mentioned it to housekeeping and they said they would take care of it, but I ended up getting some spray which help a little.

Ship tip

Be prepared and plan your day while sailing the whole day.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

5 out of 5
Did not plan an excursion in Miami. We arrived early and spent the day site seeing and enjoying the beach!

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

4 out of 5
DR was fun. We did the AVT excursion and had a ball. It seemed a little scetchy at first traveling through the country, but we ended up having a blast! Our tour guide was the best!

Grand Turk Island

4 out of 5
Grand Turk was fun! We relaxed on the beach and had a few drinks. We purchased a ride on the red lounge tug boats which was very exciting and fun!

The disembarkation experience was not all that good. We were told to meet in a specific area with our luggage until our cabin floor was called, well there was over an hour delay to disembark at the Miami port. I heard there was an issue a customs.
