Review summary

The muster drill was the worst we've ever done. It was hot and humid and we were crammed in the back of the ship near the trash on the pier. Didn't let that ruin our trip though. We always have fun on our cruises. Love going on excursions during the day and the night life on the ship. Love the itineraries out of Puerto Rico.

Food and Dining

The first couple of nights in the main dining room the food was cold but they stepped it up later in the cruise. The buffet had good selection.

Onboard Activities

The gym was nice. It'll be nice to see the new updates they'll be doing to the ship.

Did a tour and then went to Coco Beach. The beach is really rocky when getting in but it had awesome snorkeling.

Like to fly in the day before and spend a day in San Juan. We choose Caribe Hilton this time and it was beautiful

Oranjestad, Aruba

Did a tour of part of the island and ended up at Eagle Beach. Beach was beautiful but windy the sand gets everywhere with the wind.

Willemstad, Curacao

5 out of 5
Took a $20 tour of island when we got off the ship and then it brought us to Mambo Beach. We ended up taking a taxi back to ship because we wanted more time at beautiful Mambo Beach.
