We were disappointed in not being able to go to George Town, Grand Cayman! However I was reminded by my children it's still a vacation! So we made the best of it and had a very good time! Absolutely enjoyed the Starlight 4 dinning room. Food was excellent and servers were outstanding. We enjoyed our 44th anniversary meal in the Chops steak house. Probably the best steak we have ever eaten! Our server Gabriel was first class. Nassau was a very good experience. We had a private tour with an independent guide. He was awesome! Gave us a personal tour with lots of local information, history and culture.Happy    

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin was spacious and clean. Excellent staff!
Embarkation and Disembarkation
debarkation was under staffed. Escalator stopped abruptly and I almost fell on other people! Had to carry luggage down stairs while customs just looked on!

George Town, Grand Cayman
We were rerouted and did not get to enjoy George Town!
Key West, Florida
Because we and other ships were rerouted it was very crowded. It was Tuesday and it seemed like a busy Saturday!


Prefer a larger ship. Enjoyed walking the deck.
