Great choice on menu in main dining room. Fantastic meals at Steakhouse and Sushi. My kids really enjoyed the food at the sports bar also.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Lots of things going on around main pool. 10 pin bowling was out of order entire 11night cruise which was disappointing

Entertainment

4 out of 5
Saw most shows, enjoyed beer prov, others were pretty good. Only ones I didnt liked were Claudios ones(ventriloquist and hypothyroidism shows, but that's just personal opinion, I heard lots of others on ship enjoyed them). Entertainment team were good and my son enjoyed teen club

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
13 year old son enjoyed kids club, he made good friends n enjoyed the activities they did. My 17 year old daughter went 1 night but noone spoke English so struggled. A lot of games around pool etc were 18 plus so she was left kind of in the middle with not much entertainment

Least favourite stops, colon very abandoned and run down. Excursion to Gamboa monkey watching was disappointing as we were separated as a family

Party bus excursion was so fun. Make time to spend a good hour at the port, it was one of highlights of the entire trip, like a mini zoo

Oranjestad, Aruba

5 out of 5
Beautiful beaches

Falmouth, Jamaica
