Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
So many food choices Everything we tried was great. We still missed some food venues. Only issue was no food options after 10pm, except for pizza. Would love to see a few more late night options

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Loved Bolt, but only got to ride it once. Our reservations kept getting canceled for "maintenance " Played Mini-Golf, plenty of Trivias, Ropes course, and did plenty of playing in the pool.

All of the shows were amazing. We seen 6 comedians, the electric violins, a few deck parties, and a few stage shows. What we enjoyed the best was The Backyard Band at Summer Landing.

Ship tip

Ship is huge with plenty to do, and plenty to eat. Make an effort to try as much as you can

Ports of call

Nassau, Bahamas

Did Blue Lagoon Family Beach Day. Huge mistake I still don't know what we paid for. They separated the beach because there were multiple ship excursions. We got stuck in a tiny portion, very shallow- under 3 feet deep. No soccer or volleyball on beach. Food was below average at best. Waste of time

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

5 out of 5
Did the 27 Waterfalls and Zipline Excursion . Had a great time, lots of walking
