Room Type: Balcony

Highlights - Outstanding Ice Skating Show, Evening Broadway Review, Wave Rider and huge fitness center. Majority of crew members were friendly and helpful. One disappointment - very crowded walking path due to the number of chaise lounges on that same deck.

Cabin / Stateroom
Stateroom Attendant Sholikhin....+++! Stateroom was clean and roomy. Bed was rock hard but Sholikhin fixed that for us.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Pretty smooth. Better than Galveston.
Ship Quality
Our previous cruise with a different cruise line had a better ship layout for our preferences. It was less crowded and had more quiet, outside areas to rest, read, etc.
Destinations and Excursions
Heard some complaints about the glass-bottom boat that wasn't, at St Maarten. Gondola at St Thomas was great and well worth $21.
Onboard Activities
Overall very good.
Children's Programs Did not participate.
Lots of energy and talent. Great voices and skating skills.
Service and Staff
Stateroom Attendant Sholikhin was simply great!
Food and Dining
Issac Dining Room Table 105 - Ruben and Marvin did a nice job of attending to us. Marvin was particularly tuned in to what was happening at our table. Ruben has a subtle but fun sense of humor.


Non-smokers - avoid the smoking side of the ship. It's easy to do. Don't miss the Ice Show. Have some laughs at the Wave Rider.
