Review summary

Overall we had a great cruise, the first sea day was very windy but not unexpected for this time of year out of Galveston. The last sea day, which was Valentine's Day, was chilly and wet most of the day but we had fun inside.

Redfrog Pub and Brewery

We loved music with Jamie every night and the waiters learned our drinks and names quickly. This was our favorite place on the ship. We also played shuffleboard and foosball.

The adult game show and carnival quest did not disappoint. Dilly dilly!

Family Harbor Lounge

4 out of 5

It was great to have breakfast daily until 9:30 on port days and 10:30 on sea days. Then they had snacks in the afternoon at 3:30. My kids made friends in the lounge playing games.

Ship Quality

Deck 3 and 4 are choppy.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The cabin was clean and our room steward was great. It is right across from the family harbor lounge which is great. However, the gally is directly above and noisy all day and night. It didn't bother me too much but drove my wife crazy.

Ship tip

Take the stairs, if you are able, instead on waiting for elevators.

Ports of call

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
Grand Cayman is always great but with 4 ships in port it was busy. We went to Margaritaville and the kids played in the pool and loved the water slide.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
We went to Mr. Sanchos so enough said. It was great!

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

Went to the Blue Hole and had a blast. Our kids want to go back ASAP.
