Review summary

I really enjoyed it! Can't wait for the next cruise, I definitely overpacked, learned what I needed and what to leave home!

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Super easy

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The buffet was always busy, too many people, so I didn't go there much. I had Continental Breakfast in my room everyday, you had quite a few things to chose from, so breakfast and coffee in bed! Went to the dining room each night, quite a few choices, you could have extra appetizers if a dinner pick wasn't your favorite. Super rich desserts. No need to dress up, just don't wear shorts or swimwear. Loved the pizza, easy to go grab a slice, same with hamburgers, hot dogs, and gelato!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
There was always something going on, on multiple floors, from dance classes, belly flop pool contest, movies etc

Entertainment

5 out of 5
I had first dining, as soon as done went to the early show in the theater, singing, dancing, gymnastics, very entertaining, no reservations necessary

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
My waiters were Oscar and Mosa, the were amazing! My room steward was Grimaud, he was quietly making my space special, I loved him! Everyone on the ship was kind and helpful.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
It was very clean, nicely maintained. Looks like my inside room had new walls, lots of storage, easy to use safe, people always cleaning.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
I went solo, so one large bed, lots of storage, closets, safe, dressing table, drawers, plenty of room for 1-2 people. Shower was small, but worked nicely, very comfortable bed and lots of pillows.

Ship tip

If you can, buy the lowest drink package, you can get bottles of water to take to your room, drinks there and their private island. Small internet package was also nice to stay in touch with those at home.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida Did not visit port

Flew into Fort Lauderdale and used a van service to the ship, so drove through Miami, but that's all.

OCEAN CAY MSC MARINE RESERVE, BAHAMAS

3 out of 5
It's new, water was too cold to swim, so walked the island, hoping for a ride back since they did have little shuttle rides, but none would stop, this was the only place I went to that nonperson working there seemed friendly or helpful.

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

4 out of 5
Hired a driver to take me on a tour, he was great, but because of weather the boat docked away from town, so I just enjoyed a ride through the countryside. The rain forest, Fern gully etc

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
I had an excursion to stingray city, but it was called off, so they took us to caymen turtle center, it was nice, but we only got to see a small portion, apparently didn't pay enough to see it all, the we went to Hell and back, not an interesting stop, I would love to fly into the Cayman Islands and see other things

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Very cute, like Mexico on Disney steroids. Lots of shopping, bars, Starbucks with WiFi, pharmacies were I got antibiotics, retin-A, pain meds etc, watched people swimming with dolphins. A lot of people took taxi's to go to resorts, but I enjoyed a nice stay then back to the quiet ship, lunch, hot tub and a good book on deck.

Disembarkation

2 out of 5
Too bad that is the last impression, take the early off option, you have to take your own bags but worth it, it took several hours of waiting, standing in line, just a bad way to end a nice trip
