Staff was always cleaning. The ship was beautiful. The lounges are very comfortable. The furniture is quality. The cabins are roomy and designed very well with plenty of storage. It is the best designed bathroom on any ship I've been on.

Very roomy, clean and comfortable. The double pullout sofa was very nice to lounge on. The balcony was big enough to enjoy. The bathroom was very roomy and functional. There was plenty of storage space in the cabin. The bed was quite comfortable. The linens are quality. The room is very modern.

Ship tip

Take your own Kleenex facial tissues. They don't provide them. Take your own snacks/drinks because they are very costly on the ship. There is a mini fridge/bar in your cabin.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

5 out of 5
Did not do an excursion. The port is easy to navigate.

Oranjestad, Aruba

5 out of 5
I've been here 3 other times so I didn't do an excursion. I shopped and had a late lunch at El Gaucho, an Argentine Steakhouse. Very delicious.

Willemstad, Curacao

5 out of 5
I would like to spend more time on this island. It is very beautiful.

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

3 out of 5
I went shopping. Walked a lot. The vendors are very aggressive. A police officer had to intervene to get a tour guy to leave me alone. I would not recommend venturing out on your own. Always walk with other people from your ship. Enjoyed sitting in a restaurant by the water enjoying a cold coke and free wifi.

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
Loved Grand Cayman. I want to spend more time here. The island beaches are beautiful.

OCEAN CAY MSC MARINE RESERVE, BAHAMAS

4 out of 5
It is recently opened. The beaches are beautiful. When the vegetation matures it will be an oasis! I would recommend building a large swimming pool. I would also recommend having shops that sell affordable souvenir tshirts and trinkets.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
It was organized, efficient, and very quick. I was off the ship and through customs in less than 15 minutes.
