Review Summary

We had an amazing time. The service was phenomenal from loading to dining to entertainment to staterooms to unloading. The crew has everything down to an exact science! You couldn’t help being in a good mood because the staff of the ship set a joyful mood. The entertainment was super. There was something for everyone. I did not realize we could watch the entertainment shows on the TV until it was too late to watch them. Next time we will be sure to tune-in. We might have had cloudy days, but with all the activities available we really did not notice it. We even set our minds to the fact that we were going to go to the Horseshoe Beach and lay on the beach in our bathing suits. We did-for about 30 minutes then we donned our jackets and wondered the beaches enjoying the sites. The 5 hour mini-bus tour of the islands was magnificent. The driver gave a super commentary explaining the life of the natives. Very informative! Do not go on the Pirate Glass Bottom ship expedition. A waste of your money and time. We wish there had been more choices of entrees in the main dining room. The white and red sauce for pastas had no flavor. It would be nice to have a guide explaining the elevator system and how to get from point A to point B. We had no idea that we could only enter our stateroom from the forward elevator and had to go to deck 5 every time from the aft and walk to the other elevator. Finally we figured it out on our own.

Ship Tip

Windjammer breakfast and lunches were better than the main dining room. The DaGama breakfast had small portions and cold. Lunches were ok in DaGama. DeGama diinners were good, but not enough choices.
