Not the best and not the worst

Sail Date: September 06, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Balcony

They were a little more expensive than Carnival and I did not think it was any better. It seemed to be a lot stuffer than Carnival and had no reason to be because it wasn't any better. They cut corners in entertainment and dining that stood out to me. The ship was quite a bit nicer than what we have been used to on Carnival, but we have never gotten a balcony so not sure how nice the balcony rooms are on Carnival and have not been on any of Carnivals big ships either so can't really compare.
Cabin / Stateroom
Liked the amount of room we had, didn't get to spend too much time on the balcony until the evenings because it was so steamy hot from morning until late afternoon.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs
They play the same movies all week long, not much variety.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
All of the juices they put out are watered down to make their supplies stretch. My time dining actually has to be reserved.
Port Canaveral, Florida
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
The beaches were very clean and lots of fish swimming around you.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Shopping in main street is the place to be.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
The tour that goes to Orient Beach, shopping, and sightseeing was 4 1/2 hours long, great value and tour guide was excellent and informative.


The pizza on the Promenade was pretty good as we're some of the sandwiches from the coffee shop. The food in the Windjammer was nearly as good as what was in the dining room and if you prefer to dress more casually then that is the place to be....not as stuffy. There was always a good selection.
