Scarlett's Steakhouse

Everything was totally surreal. From the service to the food, everything was top notch. It is something we experience and will continue to experience every cruise.

Mongolian Wok

A really tasty make what you want food area. You will not be disappointed. The popularity of this venue is evident from the continuous line ups- worth the wait.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

5 out of 5
Loved it. Good port to stay pre and post cruise to do some excursions or sample some of the local cuisine.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

5 out of 5
a great port. No need to go far to find a beach and a few drinks. Just hop on the water taxi and take a right once you get on the dock.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

My wife found this an awesome place to go shopping. we did a tour of the island and then some light shopping at the terminal.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

Been here a number of times and we enjoyed walking around sampling some food and studying the architecture.
