Review summary

Superduper ship but bars sucked. Service was excellent. Food was generally good but did not blow me away....although there were some stars..the curry chicken and other indian dishes were terrific.

Very clean..but typically small..the promenade view was nice

Ship tip

Fantastic trip and itinerary to labadie and falmouth jamaica...but the bars and bartenders on board were crap. Couldnt get a descent drink..they could make an old fashioned just have to ask for exactly what you want.

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

5 out of 5
Very convenient cruise terminal right behind airport....took about 10 minute cab ride

Labadee (Cruise Line Private Island)

It was just ok. Why does RCI let you be overwhelmed by the vendors in the "artisan villlage"??? There were just too many of them for the amount of cruisers.

Falmouth, Jamaica

Great time on an excursion to Ocho Rios for rafting.
