Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The javablue dining room was very nice and elegant. They put on dances that were very entertaining and fun. I would highly recommend the waiters at table 555 the week that I went!!!

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
I went on the skybike and it was very cool you could see the view everywhere around you, I loved it! I also did the skycourse and it was amazing as well, the only problem is the lines are really long and if it's to windy you can't go.

I didn't really attend many shows my self but my family members did and they said the singers and dancers were amazing. I attended a comedy show by dean Gaines and he was funny but some of it was over my head so I didn't get a lot of things he was saying.

Children's Programs

4 out of 5
I went to circle C and I wasn't sure about it at first but the supervisor was absolutely amazing!!!! If it weren't for Eddie I wouldn't have came back! Eddie was the best, funny, very involved, and wanted to make sure everyone was having fun!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The service was very good in the dining room except for one night when our table was secluded, the service was terrible. The room steward was good but didn't stand out to me and was hard to understand.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The areas were cleaned very fast and, they were very neat. However the ships layout was very average, if you wanted to get to the other side you would have to go through things and it was ridiculous. The theatre seats were also very akward to sit in and get around.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The cabin was very neat and pretty. It smelled really nice and the size was nice, plenty of room for three people. The coloring in the room is very nice and the room is laid out nicely.

Ship tip

Get ready to have the time of your life. On the port days the sky attraction lines will be shorter. When you go to ports make sure you stay on ship time so you don't miss the boat.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

5 out of 5
Wasn't the prettiest but it's Florida so I eat that, it wasn't bad but the other ones were a lot nicer

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

3 out of 5
Very pretty the water was very clear. On the island there is many goats roaming around and lots of poverty. I went water tubing and it was so fun and relaxing.

George Town, Grand Cayman

4 out of 5
I love you to support the islands are so pretty lots of agitation and the water was very clear/blue. I went swimming with dolphins and stingray city. The pictures they take were way over priced. It overall it was an amazing experience.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Mexico was my favorite port, I went helmet diving and snorkeling. It was very professional and they cared about your safety. Me and my sister both did get seaweed rash from swimming in the water.


5 out of 5
Very easy and simple. The lines go by very quickly and they offer priority which is nice.
