Review summary

I totally enjoyed myself and received value for money spent, my first cruise and will not be my last. I now have to make a diet and exercise plan for all the food eaten and the daily specialty dishes offered.

layout of the ship was fine, you knew on which decks to find certain things, ie food, entertainment, pools/hot tubs etc.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The cabin was comfortably laid out, surprised at all of the storage/closet space available. It was very clean and i felt right at home in it. There was an automatic floor lighting that illuminated at night once you got out of night. Cabin was adequately lit

Ship tip

Review itinerary of events the night before so as to benefit from all the various activities the ship has to offer and or download the ship's app for daily update. Try to book shore excursions prior to your sail date so as to get the ones you are truly interested in doing.

Grand Turk Island

The welcome center was a buzz of activities and you had a true resort vacation feel. The local island tour gave an overview of the islands history....very small island.

La Romana, Dominican Republic

Cultural welcome by dancers, tour of island done and a visit to the downtown touristic area where souvenirs were purchased.

Willemstad, Curacao

Well developed island with lots of places to visit...visited the local distillery got an idea of how the natives live and how slavery played a big part of the islands history. Drove over the highest bridge in the Caribbean

Oranjestad, Aruba

5 out of 5
A true tourist destination, clean island with lots of resorts to explore, beaches were really beautiful and we saw the contrasting desert like section of the island. Volcanic rocks lined the road sides. Lots of shopping to be had, a wide variety of souvenirs for purchase
