If you can find another ship that meets your budget and time frame I would highly recommend you try it. The staff wasnt very friendly at all and the food in the dining main hall was aweful. We had to eat at the buffet everyday and same old food. Nothing for kids to do if you plan on bringing any. If you go to the casino good luck on getting a drink. Room was OK and the ports were OK. If you go to Cueaco be prepared to be hounded and hounded by people. Especially a guy with a monkey who just walks up to you and puts a monkey in a diaper on your head and demands $5 for each picture you take. Puerto Rico was the dirtiest port we have ever been too. Good Luck hope this helps.

Ship Quality
Small nothing fancy
Food and Dining
Main dining was horrible, buffet was plain.
Service and Staff
Very rude staf.

Not designed for kids. And what kids were there wasnt a pool for them. So you had a bunch of kids and teen agers in a pool that was suposed to be for 16 and over. They shut down all pools at 10PM
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Cabin / Stateroom
Shower really small
San Juan, Puerto Rico

Oranjestad, Aruba Best port of all! Great scuba diving! Clean place
Willemstad, Curacao 7 people shot same day we was there. Alot of gangs and robberies. Dont go far from boat
