Not a whole lot of history to learn or sites to see. Just beaches and sun which was still nice to enjoy.

Although we could go through priority checking, the other members of group could not. The line still moved quickly and our rooms were ready as soon as we got on the ship at 1pm.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Buffet wasn’t great. Food over cooked and dry many days during breakfast and lunch. Main dining experience was great in regards to service, but food selection from apps to dessert weren’t phenomenal.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Outdoor pools were great. Only ever walked through solarium. Rock climbing wall was very easy for adults, but more challenging for children. Fitness center needs at least a smith machine or some barbells. Dumbbells went from 5-75lbs. Plenty of machines, treadmills. Hours of operation should be earlier than 6a. Mini-golf was fun and easy to access in regards to equipment. Open 24 hrs.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It’s an inside cabin. Didn’t spend much time in there except to sleep. Fit our family fine.

Ship tip

Lots of things to do, but you have to choose one over the other because the daily schedule had multiple interesting things to do at the same time. Many adult events were so late that you either had to pay for after hours kids club or miss the activity.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

Labadee (Cruise Line Private Island)

Beaches are nice. Locals selling art are pretty annoying. Inflatable obstacle course was cool. $20 per person per hour. Owned by Royal Caribbean so it’s centered around them making money.

Willemstad, Curacao

5 out of 5
Great time. Taxi driver was friendly and informative. Toured around from caves to blue liquor, visited papagoa(sp?) beach, it was nice and relaxing.

Kralendijk, Bonaire

Snorkeling was great.

Oranjestad, Aruba

Overly touristy. Seemed very controlled.
