Review summary

The cruise was such fun. Great time at the ports. Loved the relaxing days at Sea. The staff made sure we were taken care of and comfortable. Service on the ship was fabulous. Came home feeling relaxed and ready to get back to life on the mainland.

Embarkation

The line was so long. It moved at a regular pace but it took us about 30 minutes to get to the check in desk.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We enjoyed both the buffet and the Grand Cuvee dining room. The for was fresh and there was a really great variety in the buffet. We missed having berries in the morning though. We also enjoyed the Lawn Club Grill and Murano's. Both were excellent in food and service.

Murano Restaurant

5 out of 5

The service is spot on. Food is exceptional. Sommelier is very knowledgeable. We had an excellent evening here

Cafe al Bacio and Gelateria

5 out of 5

Coffee drinks are perfectly crafted and I think they have the best pastries on the ship. The gelato is so delicious.

Cellar Masters

5 out of 5

We did two wine tastings here. Both were very informative and fun. The second one was a private one with only 8 people. It was excellent and we learned a lot.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Pools were clean. Most days finding a chair wasn't a problem and the staff came by regularly for drink orders.

Entertainment

Didn't attend any

The Lawn Club

5 out of 5

Really fun place for dinner. Outdoor venue. Relaxed environment. Delicious food. Great service

Patio on the Lawn

5 out of 5

We reserved an Alcove for the last day at Sea. I wish I had done this earlier in the cruise because I would have used the Alcoves a couple of times. You're waited on hand and foot and have a private outdoor area to relax in all day!

Children's Programs

No children traveling with us

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff was excellent. Attentive. Friendly. Happy to help. Everyone on staff always smiled and said hello

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was very clean and in good condition. I know it's being refitted next year and some people have said it's "tired looking" but it is maintained in great shape and we didn't experience any problems.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our cabin was very clean and large enough for the two of us. Lots of storage space in the room and bathroom. Our bed was split for us. We had plenty of room to move around and relax. The balcony was perfect. I wish the chairs were better suited to reclining

Ship tip

Make sure your visit Cafe Baccio. Check in early or late to miss the lines

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

We enjoyed Fort Lauderdale. Ate at Coconuts. Did the WonderMunch food and history walking tour on Las Olas Blvd, which was lots of fun

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
Beautiful. We had a private boat for the six of us. Our captain took us snorkeling, to a fabulous beach restaurant for lunch and then to swim with the stingrays

Oranjestad, Aruba

5 out of 5
Had so much fun here. Took a taxi to a beach for the day. Then did the Kuku Kunuku dinner and bar hoping tour

Willemstad, Curacao

4 out of 5
It's quite commerical here. We did a resort for a day at Santa Barbara Resort. The property was beautiful but the service was very poor and the staff ignored us. We had to really work to get an order taken.

Kralendijk, Bonaire

5 out of 5
My favorite port. Beautiful island. Did an excursion which gave us a tour of the island and the salt production then had four hours at a beautiful resort.

Disembarkation

Smooth! Get a porter as soon as you get off the ship. They will take you to the front of the line
