Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The bars are always great and Manhattan room was very good service and food. Teppanyaki is a special place and go there at least twice every cruise and O,Sheehans is good for something in between. Wish they had a 24hour pizza, sandwich shop for those late night munchies

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Pool deck and pool are much to small for this ship always jammed and sea days are the worst and they made a glass room for smokers that jams them into a 20x30 space!


4 out of 5
All the shows were very good and enjoyed them all

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Most of the staff were very friendly but I think the dinning room staff are not so much. I think because of the free style dinning that you seldom get the same waiters so never get to know each other.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Other than pool deck it worked for us. Would like to see a bigger casino

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Regular balcony cabin, great for the two of us and bath room and shower were of good size

Ship tip

Get to pool deck early and nice bar at rear of deck 16

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

4 out of 5
Just stayed the night and got on ship

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas

3 out of 5
Have been stopping here for 25 years and not much done to it in all that time. Long lines at the bars, Beach so rocky that at low tide you get all banged up trying to get out to deeper water. and not much to do and always waiting for tenders. I would rather pass this up for a stop somewhere else.

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

3 out of 5
Stopped at James Bond pier that is an old mine port. Everyone jammed up trying to get a cab or go to town. Have done many tours on this Island and after always getting bugged by the locals and the condition of the island we normally stay on the boat or close.

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
Love this place but never there long enough. Ship anchors up and have to tender in and out but only there for about 5 hours.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Always a great place, nice beaches and plenty of things to do


2 out of 5
Although we carry our lugage off they started using a face recongnition device that had lines throughout the ship. I think this eliminated the port police.
