Review summary

We never considered ourselves “cruisers” and a lot of the social activities weren’t anything we cared to be a part of. Selling watches and purses every evening in the promenade, cheapened the whole experience. It was fun to people watch and there were lots of little things to discover along the way.

I thought it was pretty bold to try and sale a first time (and probably only time) customer $2000 skin care products. Was just getting a pedicure which was average. Staff were friendly!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
ALL the waiters and other service providers were always smiling, accommodating, and pleasant to be around. Loved the cultural diversity! Our room steward, Valent, was so kind and kept our room always looking neat and clean. It was nice to see him after a long day. Like coming home to family.

Ship Quality

Ports of call

Falmouth, Jamaica

5 out of 5
The people of Jamaica were the nicest and most welcoming of all the ports. We took a 5 hr bus tour to Montego Bay and the countryside. Visited a plantation and ate. Traditional Jamaican meal and drank Lemon Red Stripe. The Red Stripe beer you drink in the US doesn’t compare to the one we had in Jamaica. Hope to return!

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
Had no idea that beaches could be so beautiful and the water clear as glass! We did the late morning Jeep tour and had the best time. Our Jeep didn’t drive well but we still had fun! Prior to starting the Jeep tour, we made our way over to 7-mile beach. Can’t wait to go back!

Cozumel, Mexico

4 out of 5
We booked a “non-cruise affiliated excursion”. We did just fine. No problem with getting back to the ship on time for departure. We went to Isla Pasion. It was a little scary getting there but once we arrived on the little island, it was awesome! The food and service was great. Nice to not be in a crowded, commercialized, tourist trap. This was very laid back.

Galveston, Texas

1 out of 5
Very very difficult time finding parking lot by address. Traffic flow was unorganized. Parking lots advertise “free parking” for veterans and must check on that when you arrive. Of course when you arrive, they don’t have any “free for veterans” parking available. I hope to never have to visit Galveston. The terminal was ok.

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
Didn’t know what to expect but it was pretty easy.
