Review Summary

The ship was unbelievable! It was my first cruise and everything I had hoped for in terms of quality of accomodations, activities and staff exceeded my expectations.

Ports Of Call

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

5 out of 5
Must see: Dunn's River Falls......was fantastic. Dolphin's Cove........beach/relaxation area was too small. Nothing to do if not paying for the interaction with Dophins.
Don't Miss: Dunn's River Falls

Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)

5 out of 5
We did the kayak excursion and I didn't care for stopping at a beach area to be aggressively pursued by native selling products placed on beach blankets.

George Town, Grand Cayman

Nautilus submarine was not a true "submarine"; however the views of the reef were spectacular. Do not advertize this excursion as a submarine. The Land excursion was way too rushed; 10 minute stop here, 30 minutes there.
Don't Miss: Shopping!

Cozumel, Mexico

Tulum/Xhe-Ha Excursion. Loved the Mayan Ruins. Only had 1hr, 15 minutes for the aquarium. Too much time spend traveling on the tender to/from the ship and the bus ride. In retrospect, should have just done 1excursion.
