We were very impressed with the service from the bus boy to waiter and room service. We felt all the employees on the cruise were very nice. The entertainment every night was very well organized and impressive so we looked forward to what they had scheduled for each evening. My teenage daughter was so happy with the "Teen Club" being this was her first cruise. We were happy she was happy....believe me this is so important.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was excellent. We looked forward to our evening meals and the different options. During the meals there was entertainment at the dining room with all of the waiters. This made it a warm and inviting environment.

The Entertainment was well planned. The commedians were so funny and the evening comedy for adults were the best.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff are very welcoming and at your service. Could not be better.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
We felt the size of the ship was too small for the number of people it carried so its layout was not good. The pool was always overcrowded and both were too small.

The port is absolutely beautiful and the shops were a lot of fun to shop at. We took beautiful pictures by the port.

They have to come pick you up at the cruise ship by boat and when you get to the port you cannot go beyond their gated shops because you are at your own risk.

Beautiful, beautiful 7-mile beaches.
Don't Miss: Don't miss the Tayacana Beach tour

Pros: The service and the evening meals

Cons: I did not care for the size of the cruise ship, I found it small.
