Might be biased, as I got engaged on this cruise, but it was an awesome ship. Fun things to do around every corner.


We didn't do drink packages, there were many ports and it wasn't expected we'd break even on it. Take advantage of the daily 2-for-1 specials and drinks of the day.


A storm was on the horizon for part of the cruise but never hit us directly. Only bad part was that all water related excursions in Cozumel were cancelled due to rough waters after the storm passed through.  Left us with little to do, but walking around and making the most still was fun.


Grand Cayman was amazing. Loved it the most. Labadee was also very fun. If you want to snorkel, suggest staying away from the water near the zip line. It was strong and pushed me into coral several times. We rented floating mats and that was super relaxing. Jamaica, we saw Dunn River Falls and the Bat Caves excursion. Highly recommend. It's a popular excursion but not to be missed.


No complaints about the boat. Staff was polite, food was excellent, things we did were all fun. We'd definitely do this ship again.

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin was roomy enough for two people. No complaints. The bathroom setup was improved from older cruise ship experiences. Much more easier to move around.
