Onboard Activities

Production shows were great. Comedians were so so but funny. The main pool is great but it’s difficult to get a chair unless you get there early on sea days.

Fortune's Casino

5 out of 5

Very nice casino but just not that busy.

Stage shows were great! Comedians were so so but funny. Djs were ok considering the average age group they had to play to on our sailing. Our favorite was the silent disco!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Design is beautiful. Our only complaint was the exuberant amount of glasses/cups, plates and dirty tables on deck. It seems the ship did not have the staff to keep these areas clean. We saw our stateroom attendant along with bar staff cleaning on deck a few times.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Great cabin. We were worried about the location being next to the grand foyer and bar closet, but there was little to no noise from these areas. Also, we felt almost little to no motion from the ship. Which was almost dissapointment for us.

Did the Secret Sands tour and it was wonderful. About twelve of us on a private beach with drinks and chairs provided. No vendors to bother you.

Frederiksted, St. Croix, U.S.V.I. Did not visit port

Had to stay overnight in Antigua due to tropical storm Kirk
