Review summary

The ship and staff were great. Food excellent and so was the entertainment. We loved the anytime dining and the different times/days for all the shows. Very happy that we didn't have to rush from the day to go to dinner or a show or we would miss them. Casino was fun too. The ports and excursions could have been much better. We were not told we would need to wear masks in all the interior areas, unless seated (which seems silly), since everyone was vaccinated and tested prior to boarding.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Waiters - Mark and Orlando in the main dining room great. All speciality wait staff very good and great at explaining the meal - especially in the case of Wonder. Virginia Friquin in Guest Services was a huge help with speciality dining reservations!! Thank you to her and all the wait staff. Our Room Steward was very nice and polite. Some of the staff was very rude about wearing the masks.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Common areas were clean and maintained. The layout was very easy to follow for such a huge ship. We all loved the ship. Our first time on the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Cabin was fine. It was clean. We had 3 people so it would have been nice to have a real bed for our son. It would have been nice to have some toiletries as well. Our housekeeper was very nice and polite.

Ship tip

Try and book shore excursions and speciality dining prior to boarding

Ports of call

St. John's, Antigua

1 out of 5
We did not visit St. John's instead we went to St. Kitts. We did a beach and snorkel excursion. It was suppose to be a catamaran boat (according to shore excursion people on ship). The boat was terrible and the beach was even worse. Very bad excursion.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

2 out of 5
All were booked when we booked our cruise, except 2 spots for scuba diving which my husband and son went. They said it wasn't a great experience and the staff/masters were not that great. The port town wasn't great.

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

5 out of 5
We could have spent 2 days here. Lots of different areas so plenty of beach chairs, snorkel equipment, places to eat and drink. Very pretty.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
