Review Summary

My family thoroughly enjoyed our cruise. We went with friends who are frequent cruisers so was nice to have great advice along the way. It was our first cruise and was amazing. We had awesome service in the dining room. Our waiter was so awesome with the kids as well. There was something for all our various ages to do so was never a dull moment. It was a much needed relaxing get away for us. Thank you for making our first time Amazing!

Even tho we didn't use them this trip they looked like they would be a great thing. Our kids with our friends kids were just all different ages so didn't us the programs this time.

Service and Staff

Everyone is so friendly. With having our own business I could only wish we had such a crew working for us. Well done!

Cabin / Stateroom

Was great for what we needed. Next time would be fun to try one with a window maybe or even a personal deck. Will see :)

Ship Tip

My only thing I would recommend is when on Grand Cayman make sure the taxi/shuttle driver knows exactly which beach you are going to. Ours took us all to one place that only one couple wanted to go to and would not take us where we planned. However all worked out fine and we had a great time anyhow.
