Great cruise experience

Sail Date: April 24, 2014

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

This was a great cruise to relax on.  Enough sea days to really get to know the ship and relax.  Shows were fun.  Ice skating show was spectacular with 1st class costumes. Could have watched it over and over.  Rooms were nice, though balconies were smaller than expected.  The ones on Royal Caribbean are larger.  Would definitely recommend this cruise and would go again myself.







Ship Quality
Room carpets and sofas are showing wear
Food and Dining
Very good food. Waiter was great with recommendations.
Service and Staff
Erky from Turkey was great. A big loss that he has left to train to be a private pilot.
Bingo is a little too expensive. Everything else was great.
Destinations and Excursions
Cabin / Stateroom
Room size was good. Balcony a little small. Carpet and sofa really need to be replaced. Lots of bad stains.
Cape Liberty (Bayonne), New Jersey
Very confusing getting to this port. We drove and had lots of trouble finding the port. No signs until you were there.
King's Wharf, Bermuda
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)


Promande Cafe is great place to meet up with your group. Since we got stuck with early dining, no one ever really wanted lunch. The small ham and cheese croissant and a cookie made a perfect afternoon snack. Their pizza and other sandwiches were also good. Great place for people watching, too.
