Review summary

This was our first cruise, and we didn't really expect to like this sort of vacation. But we actually found that we did like the relaxed pace, and the fact that it seemed more European.

Enjoyed the Pergola restaurant.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We only did the nightly Pub Quiz, but we really enjoyed it.


4 out of 5
Seemed a little amateurish, so we only went to 2 shows. But we loved the actual amateur show - the cruise crew variety show was great!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Great servers in the Pergola restaurant, attentive service from our steward.

Ports of call

We didn't do any excursions before or after the cruise.

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

5 out of 5
Did an independent excursion to Green Grotto, which was great since it turned out to be only us two.

George Town, Grand Cayman Did not visit port

Decided not to do the tenders, but instead lounged on the nearly-empty deck and had a nice quiet lunch.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico Did not visit port

Ship was unable to dock


5 out of 5
Enjoyed the nearly empty beaches (in places), the Lighthouse Bar, and the light show which we watched from our balcony. The music on the beach was a little loud.
