Review summary

We had an amazing time! The weather didn’t really like us this time but we still had a blast, the ship is much to do.

We had priority boarding and it was night and day compared to our last embarkation experience, so easy!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Main dining room was awesome! Our assistant waiter was amazing, we looked forward to dinner every night. We ate lunch at Johnny Rockets one day and we were so disappointed the waiter was rude and seemed bothered to even have to talk to us.

Service and Staff

Assistant waiter Ivan was great! We loved having him as our waiter each night. We had a run in with a less than happy waiter at Johnny rockets, he was rude and almost talked down to us.

Ship Quality

They did a great job with the refurbishment!

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Bed was pretty standard, we did enjoy the size...with four of us it didn’t feel to cramped at all, balcony was a HUGE plus. The Cabin felt like it needed to be refurbished, just a little dated.

Ports of call

Nassau, Bahamas

It’s was a rainy mess when we got off the ship but it was not organized very well as to were we needed to be to get to our ship booked excursion. Once we got to Blue Lagoon Island we enjoyed ourselves even with the huge rain storm.

Labadee (Cruise Line Private Island)

Loved every second of this place!

Falmouth, Jamaica

Very organized once you got off the ship, easy to find your excursion pick up area. We did the family thrill seekers at Good Hope...amazing day
