Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We loved them all. My grandchildren traveled with me and couldn't believe they could eat a variety of food any time of the day or night. We especially enjoyed the food and service in the main dining room every night.

Onboard Activities

We did them all, including using the spa.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Everyone was wonderful. I've never felt so pampered.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Everything was clean, well maintained, and we appreciated the the staff serving the food at first. I believe that really helps the overall cleanliness, and prevention of any illness.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Granted they could be larger, but comfort, cleanliness and service couldn't be any better. No complaints.

San Juan was interesting and we toured the old forts, and did some shopping. It was ok.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

5 out of 5
Beautiful place. Went to other side and snorkeled - lots of fun!

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

5 out of 5
This was probably the best part of the trip. What a beautiful island - horseback riding, snorkeling, and just hanging out in the water. The food was great. Probably my favorite place.


5 out of 5
Easy. I had the package that took my suitcase right to the plane - highly recommend it. I did have to get off the ship early, but it made it easier going through customs, and getting to the airport.
