Review summary

I had a great time on my first cruise. I was kept very busy with all the scheduled talks, quality entertainment, fun activities, and food choices. I definitely took advantage of the next port desk and booked my next 2 cruises. Eastern Caribbean and Alaska : Here I come!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
I loved the food and decorations in the Main Dining Room. I did not go into the specialty restaurants. The buffet had more than enough choices and good food to choose from. There was plenty of clean tables and plates waiting for us.

Bionic Bar

I could not get enough of this bar. I was fascinated with all of the non-alcoholic drinks they made.

Wipe Out Bar

I would ask the bar tender what non-alcoholic drink to try and the drink was better than expected.

Promenade Shops

5 out of 5

I was impressed with the prices and quality items in each shop. I found what I was looking for easily and was able to find good discounts.

Port Shopping

5 out of 5

I was directed by Emma, Brick, and Brianna where to go in each port for buying fine jewelry and other souvenirs. It made my shopping experience less stressful by pushy sales people in the other shops.

Next Cruise

5 out of 5

I was very impressed with my cruise choices and deals I made while booking my next cruise. I was able to pick an appointment time and feel rushed by the staff to make a hurried decision.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
The Acapella singing group was a nice surprise. I enjoyed their performance immensely. The musical Columbus 1889 was a hoot. The cast was great. It kept me laughing the entire time. I had my eyes wide open during the I skate show, and water Mad Cap water whodunit. The shows were worth it.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Roger, Dwight, and Bobb were the best wait staff. They joked, did tricks, and made balloons for us. We were served with expedience and efficiency. My room steward was Ramon. He made me smile every day. He left my messy cabin steward was Ramon who made sure my cabin stayed neat and clean all the time. Daisy was especially nice to me every day in the hallways. I thought Emma, Brick and Brianna were very knowledgeable and courteous at the shopping desk. They gave very informative talks that help me choose my purchase easily while in ports. They made me feel like a friend by recognizing me and my family by name every time we saw each other on and off the ship.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
It was a little intimidating at first until I went to the new cruisers talk the first day. I learned my new mantra of "food in the rear" and "play in the front" to orient me. The interactive maps at each elevator also was very helpful.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
This cabin was very comfortable and had a lot of storage for just me. I did not even use the back couch area very much. I would like to see how small the single cabins are to compare.

Ship tip

Food in back- fun in front. Go to the shopping and learn the ship talks on the first day. Free stuff is given away.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

5 out of 5
I thought it was easy to get around and had very friendly and helpful staff. The rental car was easy to get to and took us right away to our port and was waiting for us when we returned.

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

5 out of 5
I love the glass bottom boat tour around the cay. I played with my family in the wave pool. on the water slide, and snorkeling in the ocean. Greatest.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
I went on the Mayan Ruins tour that was great. I did not feel rushed or crowed in. The guide Edna was very easy to talk to. I would like to go back again.

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

5 out of 5
I went to Gumbalina Park to see the monkeys, Iguanas, and parrots. The guide and bus driver were very courteous and informative. I enjoyed the small group of people that I toured with. I was amazed how the monkeys and parrots were friendly and wanted to be held and posed for all the tourists who wanted photos with them. I had a great time.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
I went to the Mayan ruins and chocolate factory tour. I had a nice time learning about how different the ruins were to the one in Costa Maya. The guide Juan and bus driver were especially friendly and informative. Great tour.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
It was very fast and easy to get through all the lines to exit. The baggage porters were very helpful in collecting our luggage and taking them with us to the rental car transport area.
