had a great time

I had a great time. I would have enjoyed more activities on the ship during the sea days. There were shows going on but not that I was interested in. If I was to do this again I will just get a regular room because I didn't use the spa enough to cover the cost difference in my opinion. Overall we had fun and really enjoyed our excursions.

Cruise Photos

Cabin / Stateroom
I expected more for my cabin from the description. the 2 beds pushed together to make the king kept coming apart and someone always woke up in a hole.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
did not like the line to wait to disembark it was very slow moving and crowded. The line to pick up alcohol bought ashore was WAY too long even for the money you saved on it.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
I recommend swimming with the sting rays in Grand Cayman and Mr. Sancho's in Cozumel.
Onboard Activities
I didn't really partake in any.
Children's Programs didn't do any
really enjoyed the comedy shows but the other shows not as much
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Loved the food in the black pearl. We did our time dining and barely waited at all for a table. The steakhouse is something to visit at least once!
Miami, Florida
Didn't spend time here only to board ship. Spent the night in Ft Lauderdale and walked Hollywood Boardwalk at the beach
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
went on the tubing safari and had jerk chicken and red stripe beer (local food and drink). very great staff
George Town, Grand Cayman
Sting Rays are awesome!
Cozumel, Mexico
we booked Mr. Sancho's and had a great time for about 50 bucks a person.


Check out the steakhouse and the comedy shows after dark for really funny adult humor.
