Great Cruise!

Sail Date: May 23, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Enjoyed cruise!  Ports of Call were beautiful - especially liked San Juan.  We walked to San Christobel Fort and around town.  View was breathtaking from the fort.  It was definitely worth climbing.  We enjoyed the beach at Grand Turk.  It was a very relaxing cruise.  Shows were good.

Ship Quality
Older ship, but in good condition. Clean.
Food and Dining
Food is good, not great. We did enjoy the ice cream every day!
Cabin / Stateroom
Room was clean.
Service and Staff
Our Room Steward, Putu, did a wonderful job!
Less entertainment than prior cruises. Singers, dancers, and one magician/comedian at main nightly shows. Comedians in other areas of ship, but lounge was always full. Entertainment was good.
Destinations and Excursions
San Juan was great! Enjoyed walking to San Christobol Fort and around Old San Juan. Should have taken an excursion at St. Thomas - every store is a jewelry store! Beach at Grand Turk is nice and relaxing.
Port Canaveral, Florida
Nassau, Bahamas
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Take a tour unless you are looking for jewelry downtown. There are some good shops downtown facing the water.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Walk to San Christobel - Don't pay for a tour. It costs $5.00 per person to tour the Fort, and this also covers Fort San Felipe (also covers travel to Fort San Felipe and back downtown).
Grand Turk Island
Great beach day!


For those that burn like I do, there is a shaded area on 3rd or 4th deck where you can sit in the shade. It is so relaxing to sit and read or just watch the ocean.
