Review summary

Overall, Very Good. Again, the only downside was the lack of excitement that Carnival or Norweigen bring, it was too classy (LOL) No, I'm not a drinker, I don't have little kids, I love nice things but it was too boring. There's a fine line between fun and out of controlness which some people can get on other cruiselines, but that's on them NOT the cruiseline. If you're looking for a very quiet, subdued, where is everyone else kinda cruise this is the ship for you. Hope this helps =)

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Excellent! We were onboard in less than 10 minutes. We used the app to check in & then when we got there they scanned our paperwork (be sure to print it out & take it with you) we went through security & we walked on!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Few things to note: all of the specialty dining is one deck up from the open atrium where they have Live music, so we could not hear our waitstaff or each other. I think they intended for the music to be complimentary to the dining but it isn't it's overbearing and super loud. The other thing to note is that the desserts, no matter where you dine, although beautiful, were disappointing. Other than that the food was excellent. Especially Scoops!

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
The cruise director was more into himself than the guests. On Carnival, the cruise director gets everyone involved, even if it's just to watch the people participating...you want to see what the fun is all about! There was no, and I mean NO excitement onboard. It is an older crowd. It was almost like a ghost ship, way too quiet. IMHO

Fitness Center

5 out of 5

Excellent! Go meet Tom the personal trainer. He's a hoot!

Entertainment

3 out of 5
I'm rating this a 3 only because the comedians were EXCELLENT but the shows were not. I'll leave it at that.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our room steward Sharma was excellent! He was personable, funny, and took excellent care of us! Everyone was great from guest services, to the Spa, to the buffet waitstaff.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Loved the layout of the cabin. We had an inside cabin because really....who stays in there room except to sleep? It was roomy and the closet/storage space was ample. I cannot say enough about the shower! I love me some hot water and most importantly water pressure! Best shower in my life! LOL true story!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Excellent!! see above!

Ship tip

If you're looking for ACTIVITIES & EXCITEMENT this is NOT the ship for you. Other than that it was great!

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida Did not visit port

San Juan, Puerto Rico

5 out of 5
Love Old San Juan! Had dinner at Cafe Manolin, small hole in the wall local joint, excellent food! and of course Pina Colada's at Barrachina, because you have to!

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

3 out of 5
Tortola itself is beautiful, as are the people, but our excursion was just okay. "we're here you have 10 minutes and then we leave" kinda thing. I'm not going to name the excursion because they did the best they could, kept us entertained etc but the person I went with wanted to do excursions and I'm a go see what we can find kinda traveler, so it was the exact reason I don't do the "touristy" thing normally, but they did their best.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

3 out of 5
Love St. Maarten, love the people, BUT once again we did a rush, rush, rush excursion.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Excellent! We "walked off" meaning we were responsible for our baggage. We got to the Eden Cafe about 30 minutes before the scheduled time, got in line and were off the ship in less than 10 minutes.
