Review summary

Ship is beautiful and so many free dining options and activities make it most likely our next cruise when we bring the kids. Do your research on the ports and be prepared to do a lot of walking. We were at 60% capacity and some venues were still overcrowded. Be patient and remember we are still in a pandemic and things can’t possibly be the same as before. We will definitely be back on her soon.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Super fast! We used go port and arrived on a bus to the port. Since we arrived at 12:30 we decided to walk all our luggage into the terminal ourselves and got in line which was long but moved fast! Our room was on deck 5 so we only had to go one deck down to get to our room. As soon as we walked into the atrium we did our muster so we could start the party! By the time we made it to our room, our cards were there and we were able to go right in!

Ship experiences

Onboard Activities

Pools were all cold enough that we thought twice about going in. We found one hot tub that was warm enough and it was so relaxing. Bolt was great and putt putt was really fun with great views.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
We loved our room being so close to all the food and elevators. The elevators however, were all an absolute cluster f**ck. Pro tip, if you are waiting for one, get on whatever stops. Doesn’t matter if you want up or down just trust me. Get in and hit the floor you want. Otherwise your head will explode trying to wait for one. Many of the steps on the outside stairs are falling apart so be mindful when using them. The ones that have been repaired are not any safer.

Small but just enough room for us. Loved our cove balcony! Pillows sucked but that’s just me. Junie our steward was amazing keeping our ice filled everyday!

Ship tip

Do your research before picking this ship. I am so glad I did but there were things even I had to figure out on my own. Take a Xanax before using the elevators or get yourself a room that’s in close proximity to most of the things you want to do. She’s a big girl.

Ports of call

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

Booked Little French Key and it was so terrible i will never go back. It was so much money and not at all as advertised. Felt unsafe from the start with their horrific transportation set up. Port itself was nice but I will definitely go to west bay or west end beach next time.

Beautiful and Nice port but no beach unless you get a taxi. Swim up bar at the pool in port was clean and not too crowded.
