The ship was nice just loud no matter where you went. If your looking for a quiet diner for 2 somewhere for romance you won't find it here. All restaurants were wonderful as was the staff but you had to yell to be heard no matter where you were. Also couldn't buy bottled water on the boat and I drink alot of water.I also think the excursions were overpriced for what you got out of them.Overall it was a nice cruise but I don;t think I'd go again.It wasn't for my husband and I. We would of liked going to the island or the ports of call on our own staying in a hotel where time isn't a limit.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Some bathrooms didn't work and were too far and between.Some bathrooms were gross and I wouldn't even use.Ship size was nice and the layout was nice also.

Cabin / Stateroom

Lots of room and I loved having the balcony so the door could be open all night.Less "closed in" feeling.

Only had 2 hours to do anything and felt rushed.

Went to Junkanoo Island and that was a fun day walking the beach and laying around leisurly. Not overcrowded which was nice.

A waste of time. Went shopping in Cocoa Village. Not enough time to really get serious about looking around.
