Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Wonderland was truly an experience that everyone should try. All main dining room meals were very good with a nice selection. We had a very good waiter too.

Excellent! We really couldn’t envision what the meal was going to be like just based on the description. So we told our server to bring what he thought we might like. We loved it! Every dish was like a performance.

Chops Grille

I guess we were spoiled by Wonderland. Although the food was good, the menu is very limited. I got the petit fillet mignon medium rare. It was very soft and flavorful. The sides were just so so. The steaks my traveling companions had in the main dining room were just as good. Next cruise, I’ll try another specialty restaurant instead of this one.

Onboard Activities

Didn’t really use any of them.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
We really enjoyed the ice skating show. Columbus the musical was ok, but I wouldn’t go a second time. One thing we noticed was that the base was so pronounced that it was hard to hear the singing. The songs they sang were too modern for most of the audience. There was a lot of implied sex with grinding groins. Mo5aic was especially loud and distorted. The songs also were too much of the rap style. It would have been good otherwise.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our room steward was attentive and through. He forgot ice one day and didn’t check in our beach towels, so we got charged for them. $25 each. Kind of a kick in the head. Our waiter was very good.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Although the promenade was often packed with people, the flow worked pretty well. There were times when I’d walk up the stairs to the 7th floor, only to find I was on the wrong side of the ship and there is no crossover. You have to either go down to 6, or up to 8.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It was a nice cabin with an ample balcony. We had two chairs and a table. The chairs had a foot stool under that could be pulled out. It was very comfortable. I think the room and balcony was larger than most cruise ships. The beds were comfortable.

Ship tip

Turn in your beach towels yourself. Don’t expect the room steward to do it. The promenade coffee place does not know how to make cappuccinos. Plus every drink I got was lukewarm.

Ports of call

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

4 out of 5
I liked the down town, even though it was run down and dreary. I felt safe by myself walking the short distance from the pier to the town. There was enough shopping at the pier so you don’t have to go into town, but it’s an eye opener to see where the locals shop.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

4 out of 5
Walked off the ship right into town. Tons of souvenir stands and shops along the pier. To the left of the ship is where you’ll find things the people have made.

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

Beautiful. Well maintained with plenty of chairs
