Review Summary

I thought the ship was in very good condition. There wasn't a great deal of wear or evidence of age if you weren't looking for it. The deck was clean, dining room was elegant and the theatres and casino were all well-kept.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Most of the food was very good. At the buffets, depending on how close it was to a shift from breakfast to lunch or lunch to dinner the food varied in quality. It was always good and the options were always there, but certain things like the mashed potatoes or the coookies seemed stale on some days and delicious others.

Gambling wasn't much of our scene, the saltwater pools were overcrowded and some of the shows just didnt' appeal, but in spite of all that I still can't rate this any lower. The ship had so much going on all the time, the staff was always helpful and friendly and we had a blast just as much on the ship as we did off it.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our dining room waiter George was absolutely fantastic and I would go back just to see him. Dinner was 5 star service each and every night and George always took great care of us. If you're food wasn't to your liking, he brought you something else, you were still hungry, another entree, two desserts, full glasses, the works. The service is unlike any restaurant we've ever been to. The stateroom attendant never interacted with us but always kept things clean and made the fun towel animals for us to come back and find after dinner. The cruise director Marc was very funny and entertaining and made the game shows and other on-board events lots of fun.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
While clean and well-kept, it didn't have a certain modernism that I'd expect from some of the newer ships.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The shower was exceptionally small. No matter how many times you read that it's small, once you're in the shower it really hits you. It was clean and the attendants shifted our beds into one king size instead of two twins and always had our ice full.

Ports Of Call

Montego Bay, Jamaica

3 out of 5
The shopping and everything seemed really cool, but we honestly didn't get to spend much time in Montego Bay because our excursion was the Dolphin Swim and Dunn's River Fall combo (pricey but worth it!) which was in Ochos Rios, about an hour and a half drive from when we got on the bus. Really cool excursion, great scenery on the drive to and from, but man what a long bus ride in a damp bathing suit.

George Town, Grand Cayman

3 out of 5
We did the Stingray excursion with a Seven Mile Beach break, which was very cool. The Stingrays were amazing, and the beach is gorgeous. Don't forget your bathing suit though because there was no where between the cruise ship and the boat that took us out to the stingray sandbar to buy a women's bathing suit. My girlfriend had to buy a guy's bathing suit bottom and a tank top and just wore her bra underneath, which was slightly upsetting for her but not anyone's fault.

Pros: Dining Service
