Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We made this cruise our honeymoon, a birthday celebration, and New Year's celebration all into one big 5 day experience, and it was truly an experience we wish to have over and over again. Admittedly, this was our first cruise, but we had a fantastic time. The cruise ship  was clean, the staff was personable and friendly the entire time, and there was never a dull moment. 

Ship Quality
A little more worn than we were expecting, but by all means a very nice ship
Food and Dining
Great food, wonderful dining staff.
Service and Staff
Cruise Director Marcelo was fantastic
Live music in every corner of the ship, it was great. Johnny at the Irish Seas Piano Bar has to be seen at least twice throughout your trip.
Onboard Activities
Decent on board activities
Destinations and Excursions
Cabin / Stateroom
Miami, Florida
Definitely pay to have yourself shuttled over from the airport. It gets you checked in early, which will save you about an hour in the long run.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Great shopping, and picturesque island. Be careful with the locals at the public beaches. They rely on you for their income, and they are quite pushy
George Town, Grand Cayman
Do the stingray sandbar, but make sure your excursion actually gets in you in the water, instead of just a visit. This is a beautiful place to go to.


The best view and place to get a bite to eat is in the back of the ship. The lines were shortest there, and there were an abundance of places to sit and eat, as compared to Lido deck and the restaurant.
