The staff made this cruise a wonderful experience

Sail Date: January 03, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

From the wait staff to our room steward these people were amazing- friendly, thoughtful and very helpful. This was my kids 1st cruise and they had a wonderful time. They really noticed how much effort the staff put into doing their jobs. 


As for the ship and its amenities- needs some updating. Decor was outdated and old school Vegasesque in style- gawdy and not really appealing. Needed repairs/upkeep in areas. The schedule of events was robust but it seemed like it lacked mid-evening events for older kids. Most shows were not til 10.

Cabin / Stateroom
Only complaint was the people smoking on their balconies around us
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
no complaints on cleanliness- they were constantly cleaning!

Miami, Florida
Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic
You need to do an excursion otherwise you'll have nothing to do. Area around the port is not developed except for the cruise greeting center/shops
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Do a water excursion- the waters are beautiful
San Juan, Puerto Rico
This is a great city to walk around- safe and lots to see
Grand Turk Island
Other than beaches there was nothing to do. The greeting center/shops is the same as any other port. If you eat/drink at the restaurant prepare to shell out a lot of $$$
