Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
the ships main restaurants were very nice the Lido buffet was very good, and very roomy. Unlike other buffets it is not very hard to find a seat. For dinner I highly recommend the Reflections Restaurant for dinner because of the excellent service and great food.

Onboard Activities

The activities on the ship were very good the mini golf course was very good, and the place had a very nice mix of things and it is a great place to go in your spare time.

The ships shows were very entertaining especially Flick. Their performances were the best, and continuously changing background only made it better. The comedy shows were also good, very funny. Thumbs up to them.

Children's Programs

My child did not do the kid's clubs, but he really enjoyed the entertainment.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The service we received was excellent. The waiters were all very good especially ours, Olimpiu. He was a very knowlegeable waiter and he always gave his opinion which always turned out amazing. The room stewards were all very nice and always did a great job.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship's design was very nice. Everything was easily accessible. Very clean. Everywhere we went was immaculate.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our cabin was very comfortable; it was the perfect size, but the funny thing was that we had two bathrooms. A little odd, but I'm not complaining.

Ship tip

Totally worth it.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

5 out of 5
It's a nice port, but it was our starting point and ending point so we didn't do any excursions.

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

3 out of 5
It's good, but there aren't a lot of good attractions.

George Town, Grand Cayman

4 out of 5
A good place. My only complaint is that we did the stingray starfish thing, and they didn't warn us about the jellyfish.

Cozumel, Mexico

4 out of 5
It's a nice place and all, but it's a lot of hassle to try to get back from the ruins of Tulum.


5 out of 5
