Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was top notch. Service in the main dining room was excellent. Lido food was incredible including best hamburger and hot dogs I’ve ever had at The dive in. Sandwiches, pizza, and ramen crusted chicken wings at New York pizza was great. Tamerind Asin cuisine was a very nice authentic experience.

Dive-In

It will be hard to ever find a better burger joint anywhere.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Did not do much onboard except relax. Visited the gym daily and it was very nice and well equipped.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Service aboard was the best I’ve ever experienced in any hotel or restaurant. Room stewards were fantastic and all encounters with staff was pleasant and the were helpful and always with a smile.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Ship was spotless. I expect new fixtures in a new ship but you can tell cleanliness is high importance. Ship layout was easy to get around and maps were easy to follow.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Beautiful stateroom, ample room, plenty of closet space. Mini fridge and safe were nice. 4th deck balconies are double the size of other balconies. Very clean and comfortable.

Ship tip

My little gem was the Crow’s nest. The bar and bartenders there were my favorite. Nice quiet area with terrific view. Take advantage of happy hours throughout the day. Booze is expensive aboard so this cushions the blow a bit.

Ports of call

Oranjestad, Aruba

4 out of 5
Just walked around and found a beach and swam.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

4 out of 5
Very beautiful port area with free pool and cool zip line, once you leave the gates it looks a bit sketchy but locals were nice. Went to Damajuaga Falls and that was a unforgettable experience.

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

5 out of 5
Best beach ever! Water and sand is incredible!

Disembarkation

3 out of 5
Little lengthy and not very organized but what do you want when everyone aboard wants to get off at same time.
