Review summary

We loved it. Can't wait for the next time. The water was amazing. Much better than our Galveston waters. The staff at the port and on the ship were above amazing in service. Our boys kept saying they loved the ship and the experience. Thanks for helping us make memories for our family.

Service and Staff

Everyone was so amazing. We loved the towel animals our room housekeeping made nightly. Be sure to add extra gratuity for them.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Very clean and well maintained. It is an older ship, so it shows a little common wear but it was well maintained.

Cabin / Stateroom

This room was in the aft of the ship in the corner. Very private and lots of room. It was a spacious ocean view balcony. A great size for our family of four

Ship tip

Watch your email for updates on upgrades for rooms and package deals for drinks, wifi and shore excursions. I recommend booking through RC as they will guarantee your excursion. Our glass bottom boat tour was canceled due to the weather, 100% refunded. Also part of the Cococay water park was refunded due to the weather. We still had fun. Book your shore excursions early. They book up fast, if not at least see if you can get in a wait list. Also on board activities like laser tag, the escape room. Most of all have fun and enjoy!!
