Racquet in the dining room and Lido deck was excellent. Very friendly and efficient.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
I thought the ship’s design was a lay-off. I didn’t like that the (smoking) casino was on both sides of the walkway you had to use to navigate the ship. The ship was very clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

It was exactly what we expected

We got there at 1:00 pm and most everything closed at 5:00 or 5:30. Didn’t get to fully experience the island.

Willemstad, Curacao

Lived it. Beautiful water! Friendly people. We took an excursion on a bus around the island (through Carnival). Excellent.

Grand Turk Island

5 out of 5
Did not do an excursion. We’d been here several times before so we ju hung out at the port.

Easy. Customs agents were a little slow but the government was in a partial shutdown.
