Review summary

Enjoyed the ship. We really liked going to the shows and got a kick out of hearing Captain Kate give us daily updates and the hour long talk she gave in the theater. She has a great personality and a very interesting history. Crew was generally very helpful. Biggest disappointment was with the food and, specifically with Luminae restaurant. They sounded like they wanted to accommodate us but it never really worked out. One night (at Blu) my wife ordered steamed veggies and the waiter told her she should have notified them the night before about her preference. Not cool. Another night at Luminae, they told us they would bring bronzino from a different restaurant which was very nice. Unfortunately, the bronzino was tasteless and the vegetables were rubbery and cold. One morning at breakfast in Luminae my wife ordered crepes that arrived ice cold and couldn't get anyone to bring her cream for her coffee. It took until the fifth night for us to find out that Blu actually had a vegetarian menu we would have been happy to order from for the entire trip. All in all, the food situation was difficult for us.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
We were in the suite level so had what appeared to be a private entrance to the ship and experienced no delays. It was obviously an upgraded experience.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
We tried to use the Luminae dining room that is only for the suites but had difficulty getting them to accommodate our dietary needs.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
The gym was outstanding with a wide array of both cardio and weight options to use. They even had a few Peloton bikes that we love. It was great to have access to the Retreat and we used it every day.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
We very much enjoyed the ship's stage shows that we attended each night.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our room steward, Arsim, was outstanding. He went above and beyond to help us get acclimated to the ship and was extremely helpful. The wait staff, especially at Luminae, fell short in helping us find suitable dishes to meet our dietary needs.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was laid out nicely and easily handled all the people on board. It was clean and well-maintained. Would add I would not want a room without a true balcony.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Good sized room, balcony and bathroom. The shower was the biggest we have ever had on any of our prior cruises. We were very pleased. One drawback was the Magic Carpet which was sometimes parked so the bottom of it blocked the view from our room and balcony.

Ship tip

Spend time analyzing all your food options as we found it difficult to determine which restaurants would be able to best accomadate us.

Ports of call

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

3 out of 5
This was the only port we visited as we had never been to Tortola before. We just went to a few of the jewelry stores and returned to the ship. We really did not see much of what Tortola has to offer so it's hard to give an opinion.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Luggage removal was very organized and we did not experience a delay in disembarking.
