Review summary

The captain of the ship was a highlight of the cruise. You can tell her enthusiasm is contagious by her staff. Everyone is Very friendly and personable. The officers and heads of departments are very visible throughout the cruise and do not hesitate to stop and talk.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
This was the best embarkation experience in all of our cruises in 20 years. It took 5 minutes from getting out of the taxi to stepping on the ship.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5

Silhouette Restaurant

5 out of 5

The restaurant and its staff are very friendly and personable. They went out of our way to accommodate my food sensitivities and made eating dinner an extremely pleasant experience. Our waiter Billy and his assistant Franky were some of the best of any cruise. Their manager Slavko was friendly and talked to us whenever we saw him even in other venues. The food from appetizers to dessert was incredible. The sauces have been better than I have ever had with garlic and onions, which I am unable to eat.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
This would be my only negative comment on the entire cruise. We have been on many ships of different sizes. I liked the size of the ship but with a smaller ship comes less venues and activities. There were not many things to do.

Pool

5 out of 5

The pool area was never crowded and very refreshing even when it was 90 degrees outside.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
This ships staff is some of the most friendly I have encountered on a cruise. Everyone from the captain to the servers seemed happy to be doing their jobs. It made for a very pleasant experience.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
There were always staff cleaning and sweeping and even wiping up water by the pool. Very clean ship in all areas.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had a great location near the elevators. We were also in close proximity to both food venues which made things very convenient. I would definitely choose this cabin again.

Ship tip

This ship seems to attract an older clientele. There were some younger passengers but a majority are retired passengers. This is not a negative, just something you should know prior to booking.

Ports of call

Nassau, Bahamas

3 out of 5
We have not been fans of Nassau. I find it crowded and the shop keepers very pushy.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

5 out of 5
Great shopping destination. You can find many different items. Beautiful town and easy to walk around

San Juan, Puerto Rico

5 out of 5
I love San Juan. There are so many things to do. We took the Old and New San Juan tour and it was very informative. I would recommend this to anyone on the first trip to the island. I really wish the ship arrived earlier than 3:00 to the island. It gave limited time for shopping

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Very easy and took less than 15 minutes
