Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Cabin: GTY

This cruise is an amazing experience. The ship itself is stunning, but what makes the trip truly memorable is its world class staff and crew. Everyone goes above and beyond to provide incredible service and ensure you have the best vacation possible. I would highly recommend this ship to anyone!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Server, assistant server and bartender were EXCELLENT
Cabin / Stateroom
Booti was the best stateroom attendent. He personally made the trip more enjoyable
Service and Staff
Children's Programs
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Grand Caymans was a little boring for me. The Dolphin Cove excursion in Jamaica was an excellent value and i would recommend it. The zipline excusion in Haiti was extremely overpriced and takes way to long for such a short experience.
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
George Town, Grand Cayman
Only good if you are buying jewelry. Going to a beach will cost you an arm and a leg.
Falmouth, Jamaica
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
I loved the private island. Very nice and relaxing.


Make sure you attend all the shows. The cruise director and activities manager do a great job of making these shows unforgettable. No matter how tired you are, get up and go to the shows.
