Good cruise! I just wish my new uggage hadn't been damaged. I did enjoy the ports though. The ship was always clean and tidy. The staff are all fantastic.

The seafood was a hit or miss, at times, which is to be expected.

Luyao was fantastic! She was always kind and helpful! She's a great hostess!

Onboard Activities

The fitness center was nice! But the on-board activities were a bit disappointing, but I understand that you guys want to cater to an older crowd.

More affordable shopping would be nice.

Service and Staff

Luyao and Robert were wonderful! I thought they were both cheerful and had great dispositions. For every dinner, Luyao always brought my sister almond milk \with her coffee, without my sister having to even ask.

JAMES IS THE BEST. The room was always spotless. As a side note, he has a great smile.

Miami, Florida

More chairs would be nice. Some people were waiting for quite awhile and had to stand.

Labadee (Cruise Line Private Island) Did not visit port

Sadly, we couldn't dock because of the weather.

Willemstad, Curacao

This was my favorite port. I liked the shops. Mambo Beach was nice! But it did get quite crowded--there isn't much beach. The beer was nice and cheap near the buses.

Kralendijk, Bonaire

Great port! We went snorkeling. But I was a bit turned off by the lack of attention on "No Name Beach." Many individuals were swimming right near the coral, past the brown line. Better instructions need to be given--more care and attention. I wouldn't be surprised if the reef was destroyed in 10-15 years. It would be nice if someone monitored that beach. It seems to be a very popular stop.

Oranjestad, Aruba

We went snorkeling through Octopus Aruba. They were great! It was nice and quiet. There were only three groups on the boat.

I thought it could have been a bit more organized. I was in group 25 and they were a bit behind calling our group. We also stood in line for a very long time after we got off the boat heading to customs. My new luggage was also damaged. I'm dealing with that now. It's a very slow process.
