Review summary

Very pleasant and relaxing cruise. Totally worth getting an ocean view cabin. Not worth paying to be further up in my opinion (I was on deck 2). Worth avoiding deck 1 as these cabins only have two small port hole. Deck 2 and above have one larger one which provides a great view.

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
The dining rooms were impressive, the choice of food is vast and the service is good. The food itself was served nearly cold each time I had it.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Lots of things to do but you get the feeling things start to repeat after a while. But overall great!

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
They were very good but our specific waiter was like a salesmen emphasizing the importance of getting a rating of excellent on the final review. The speech came every time we dined.

Ship Quality

Very nice ship

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Very nice cabin, clean good proximity to elevators. Quiet.

Ship tip

I would have eaten more at cabanas where food was hot and deserts were better than dining.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

Castaway Cay (Disney Private Island)

5 out of 5
Best part of the cruise! Relaxing and beautiful. The service on the island is unsurpassed as everything is included including food. Only pay for motor sports and excursions but plenty to do for free.

Key West, Florida

4 out of 5
Very nice but also very touristy. The tour is expensive for what you get. But overall nice to go once.

We had to be sitting at breakfast at 7am after rushing to pack the night before. The whole process is rushed and while I understand they have to prep the ship for the next cruise, it would be nice if they had a day in between.
