Review summary

The itinerary was great. One day cruise, one day port, one day cruise. The ports of call were good especially a visit to Royal Palms Resort in Grand Cayman. Service was top notch. Food choice was ok. Food quality was great. Ship was recently refurbished so it was beautifully decorated.Entertainment was lack lustre except for Adagio the violin & piano duet. Mostly an older quiet crowd which is great if your are looking to relax. Not suitable for youngsters of any age. Wish they served real orange juice and quality coffee.Overall it was a good relaxing ten days as we lucked out with excellent weather and calm seas.

We walked off the ship to the free beach which offers free lounge chairs and is completely closed off to the general public with security every where.
