Review Summary

This is a beautiful ship and well maintained. The stage shows were not spectacular but the ice show was first rate. Kids will love the skating rink, inline skating track and the Adventure Ocean activities. Had to wait for seating in the Windjammer for breakfast but other meals were fine. Loved the all day ice cream dispensers by the main pool. The ports were fine. Had been to them all before but had a great time and the tendering was handled well. We never waited for a tender either coming or going. My complements to the staff, you did a great job!

Ports Of Call

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

Had a much better experience than visit years ago. Island seems safer than in the past but we still stuck with a planned excursion. Dunns River Falls was fun but watch out for the gauntlet of vendor stands on the way out. Don't be suckered, just keep walking and don't look right or left. Worked for me. Dolphin Cove was beautiful too.

Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)

Had a great time on the Pirate Encounter. This is not a party boat but a relaxing kid oriented excursion.

Cozumel, Mexico

Still lots of damage here from last years. hurricaine. The National Park Chunkanaab was beautiful and well worth the taxi ride and entry fee. Great snorkeling dispite what the tours tell you.

Pros: Captain Johnny was great! Also loved the variety of activities on this ship from the skating rink to the climbing wall. Was never bored.

Cons: Have had better food on other cruises. Variety was not real great and same food offered every day. At the same time, must be difficult to feed over 3,000 guests.
