Review summary

Overall the cruise was excellent. Good food and service. Met all my expectations no complaints.


4 out of 5
we didn't really get to experience this because our flight was 3 hours late and we got to the ship 10 minutes before we were supposed to get. Otherwise it was a very smooth process but we did have to carry our own bags to our room because we were so late.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We did not eat at any specialty restaurants but the buffet had a large variety and the dining room was excellent. The service was great the food was great and they gave you many choices to choose from.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
the pools were nice I was glad to see that there was an area for kids family and adult only area. We did play bingo I did think the cost of bingo was on the high side. Otherwise they had several activities to do while you were at Sea. A very good variety.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The service was excellent. No complaints on the service. The bartenders could be a little friendlier but all in all very good service.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
We did like the design of the ship. The ship was very clean. You always saw people cleaning. There was some wait on the elevators due to so many people being on the ship

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
the cabin was very comfortable with more storage than I expected. We were in the larger balcony room on the eighth floor.

Ports of call

San Juan, Puerto Rico

4 out of 5
San Juan was good. I do wish the ship offered valet service for your luggage would have made things much easier. Or I wish you were notified ahead of time of the restaurants that would hold your luggage.

Willemstad, Curacao

3 out of 5
We did the trolley excursion and really like that got a really good overview of the island. we did book that through the cruise ship we really enjoyed this island. We also went to the beach.

Oranjestad, Aruba

5 out of 5
we liked Aruba. We hired a local taxi driver to tour the island with she took us to all of the popular sightseeing places. We also went to eagle Beach.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

5 out of 5
My favorite place out of all four ports. Here we did a rainforest hike which we booked through TripAdvisor. We also swim with the dolphins which we booked outside from the ship on our own through the aquarium directly. We went to the beach which was beautiful and not very crowded.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

3 out of 5
I thought saint Thomas was a waste of time. You have two choices there either to shop or to go to the beach. If you have been there other times and already done those things there isn't much else to do. I also thought several of the people were rude on the island including the cab drivers. We did not. Do an excursion at this island. We ended up going to the beach.
