It's a mini Allure!

Great family boat. It's basically the allure, just smaller and older. 

We really enjoyed the specialty dining. Missed the Asian restaurant

and the Central Park and the aqua theatre but other than that 

you get an amazing week long cruise. Loved the port at Port Canaveral. 

Easiest on and off out of 12 cruises! Would book again. My teens had a blast

as well. Lots of nighttime activities. 


Cabin / Stateroom
Great location!!! Great balcony. Love port side
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Best in the business
Ship Quality
Needs a little facelift but nothing major. After the Allure anything looks dated.
Destinations and Excursions
Had to skip first stop at castaway due to rough seas. Couldn't tender. St maartin stinks!!
Onboard Activities
Two funny comedians
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Only ate at specialty dining which was pricey but aye one night in dining room and weren't thrilled.
Port Canaveral, Florida
Best port! The vip getting on made it faster inside
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
They skipped it
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Enjoyed sapphire beach. It's gorgeous
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Orient beach sucks. The people sell to you non stop. It's annoying.


Specialty dining is worth adding to the budget. We ate at all three. Chops steak house, the Mexican(guacamole made at table) and the Giovanni Italian. Nice atmospheres and great service!!!
We didn't buy the alcohol package and drink a fair amount. We saved $300.
We took our luggage off at 7:00am
