Review summary

This is a very nice & big cruise ship with several things to do, however it did seem to be a little under staffed compared to how many passengers there were. The atrium had a lot of the activities I liked to do but there was not enough room/seating for everyone. Where some of the seats were you could not see the screen due to the overhang of the above floor.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
It seemed like at the complimentary dining rooms & buffets it was always the same thing being served, just with different names

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
The ropes course was fun. The mini-putt play surface has several damaged area's that needed to be repaired as it was torn up & looked like it had been for several weeks if not longer. There was a place for scorecards but that was empty.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
I enjoyed all of the shows especially "Six". The only thing I did not care for is when we wanted to listen to the band that was in the dining room & were not eating there we were placed on hard chairs right up next to the band. The room was not even half full & we were not given an option.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Most of the staff were very friendly however several times they would come out of a door not looking and almost run into passengers.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Other than hair gathering on the outside balconies the ship was very clean. Some area's were hard to get around & find things without going to the elevator's to find the map. It would be nice if inside the elevators there were something that said what was located on each floor

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The couch converted to a bed was not very comfortable.

Ship tip

Make reservations for the comedy & stage shows when you can so you don't have to wait in line & hope there are still some openings.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida Did not visit port

I've been there several times before & just wanted to get to the ship.

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

3 out of 5
There was not a big choice of excursions unless you wanted to swim/snorkel. There was not a lot of shopping near the port except for the shops that are at every port in the Caribbean.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

5 out of 5
We did the Coral World Excursion, the best part was the Dolphin Talk & Sea Lion Talk

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas

3 out of 5
The zip line looked fun but was too expensive for how short it was. Other private islands I've gone to had walking trails to explore the islands other than beaches, where this one all the trails were blocked off for guest.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Although the line was long & the elevators were bringing down people in the middle of those lines it did not seem to take too long.
