Excellent dining options, Pinnacle Grill for fantastic steaks, great menu options in dining room and Lido Marketplace (Buffet). Always delicious and plentiful!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
pool loungers always available, music walk was excellent with the exception of Rolling Stone Rock Room (terrible band!) and not a bad seat in the theater!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
From my great cabin crew , the wonderful and very attentive dining staff, bartenders who remember your name and drinks from the first day, to the maintenance crew who always smile and say hello. Wonderful service and staff!

Ship Quality

Ship was just a year old and absolutely immaculate! Easy to explore and you never waited for an elevator. The art work was awesome!!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was decorated beautifully and was immaculate! Large shower with plenty of room and water pressure was wonderful. Balcony was large and the storage was plentiful. Great cabin!

Ship tip

Explore the artwork all over the ship! During my 14 days I was amazed at seeing something different and beautiful each and every day!

Ports of call

Traveled to Fort Lauderdale beach by LYFT. Beautiful and lots of shopping.

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

4 out of 5
Island is beautiful! Pristine beach and warm water. Would have gotten 5 stars but staff in souvenir shops were very rude.

Grand Turk Island

3 out of 5
Went on a open air tram around the island. Very dissappointing and not much to see. Stay with the beach right at the cruise port you best bet.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

4 out of 5
Very beautiful area and lots of shopping and food choices close to the port.

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
Did my own thing and walked around the area. Ate at Two Friends Resturant ( excellent fish tacos & homemade chips!) Shopped and enjoyed this great port!
