Review summary

We had a very nice time, last cruise of our season also. We will start up again in a few months. Have been on close to 30 cruises. Will continue as long as we the ships, the ocean and the diversification of people on board.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was very good no matter where you went, whether dining room or the over impressive food choices on the lido.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Walking was our major use of the ship. Fitness center is well equiped.

Comedian and the mentalist were very good, We had previously seen the dance troupe on the Koningsdam in December. They had changed up the first night presentation so enjoyed that. The rock band except for the lead singer were the same and so were the dueling pianos. Do not like the round stage and really prefer the big stage productions.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Room stewards were awesome, Guest services solved a problem we had and the dining servers are always smiling.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
As it was only 4 months old it was still in tip top shape and really enjoyed the art around the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Seems that cabins do get a bit smaller have been used to a little bigger but that is what we chose this time. But it worked well, there was plenty of storage for those who overpack!! Room stewards kept us supplied with all our needs and were always cheerful.

Ship tip

Make sure you notify them at the beginning of your cruise if you need special a diet.

Was impressed at how good the main and tourist are was. HAd previously been there also and glad to see that things are improving, Unfortunately did not get into the heart of the Island to see if they have been able to restore things to those in the outlying areas,

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

5 out of 5
One of our favorite ports, only complaint later in season so some of the stores are depleting their merchandise as they are closing for the season.

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island) Did not visit port

Weather did not allow us to get tendered to the island.

This is always a wait for your color to be called, but all in all it was good.
