A wonderful ship and cruise. It was perfect for us as first-time cruisers. Not too overwhelming but large enough so that there were never crowds or long lines.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was out-of-this-world. You can try anything and everything. We ate dishes we've never tried before. The only disappointing time was after the cruise ended. Do you know how difficult it is to go from cruise ship food back to normal food?!?


5 out of 5
More activities and entertainment than you can possibly fit in to your schedule! And the wide variety covers all age groups (young children, teens, adults, married couples, singles, etc.).

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Unparalleled service. All staff and crew go out of their way to make sure you are having the best cruise and the most relaxation possible. They know many people only get a small amount of vacation time per year, so they go the extra mile to make sure that your time is treasured and fun-filled.

Ship Quality

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Very close quarters but that is to be expected. We slept 3 comfortablly and showered and got ready in shifts. The only real time we spent in the room was sleeping and showering, so the smallness wasn't that much of an issue.

Such a beautiful and peaceful island that you have to force yourself to return to the ship! You won't want to leave the island.

Straw Market is fun but beware that you bargain over prices and the sellers can seem somewhat agressive. It's not the place to just browse contently, but there are some great finds.
Don't Miss: Deep water dolphin swim and the Segway island tour are must-do excursions.

Pros: The amazing food and all the activities

Cons: Soda pop being additional cost.
