Review summary

The ship was very nice and well-kept. The staff were pretty friendly and helpful. The room was a nice size for a family of 4. The food and wait staff were excellent. The ports of call were quite nice as well. We vacationed with friends and everyone seemed to have fun. I think the kids club should have an age bracket of 10-14 so that the activities were more age-appropriate. Overall, a great trip.

The shows were poor. They seemed to be thrown together at the last minute. Many cruises that I've been on had great Vegas style shows with singing and dancing, or a magician or hypnotist. This cruise had half-hearted shows, some which were very inappropriate for children to attend.

Didn't go to the candela show, but the village it was in was pretty dull. Not much else to do there considering the few hours we had and arriving at night.If you didn't go to the show, there was really nothing to do.

Had a great taxi driver that took us to a resort(Wyndham) where you could use the beach and pool with no charge. Thought the other tours were pretty pricey. Toured on our own and saved a lot of money.

San Juan, Puerto Rico
