Review summary

So to finish up... If they work on the food quality/selection in the main dining room then maybe I would recommend this ship. But for now, I would suggest the Navigator....Same great things and it also went thru a recent update...

It was super easy getting on the ship...

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Here's where they missed the mark... Now granted, I didn't eat in the specialty restaurants so I can't rate the food there. In the main dining room, the food was ok, not great. I went on this ship with great expectations because we were on the Navigator 2 years ago and the food was excellent...If I'm being really honest, the best meal I had was on St. Maarten!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
There is plenty of things to do so you will not be bored... The crew at the Flowrider were exceptionally helpful...

Service and Staff

We had some small issues with our cabin stewart so that's why only 4 stars... The rest of the crew we had met were the best...

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Room was really small but all you really do is sleep there anyways... Also, there were no outlets bedside which kinda stinks....I prefer to have a clock or phone so I can see what time it is as in an inside cabin, it's so dark that you could sleep the day away...

Ports of call

San Juan, Puerto Rico

5 out of 5
Only flew in and took a cab directly to the ship but I've been here several times before and really like it here. There's forts, rain forests, old San Juan... There's something for everyone....

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

5 out of 5
Love this island and we typically go to Megans Bay... Don't let people fool you into believing that it's always packed.... You have to pay to enter as it's a state park so not alot of people go there for that reason....

St. John's, Antigua
