Review Summary

The ship was nice and we would definately sail on this boat again. The ports of call were all excellent. I would recommend doing an excursion through the boat in Samana, which we did and had a blast. The port is a new stop so there isn't really anything to do right there when you get off the ship. The spa was wonderful. They had good daily specials on the days in port and almost everyone in my group tried something different. Everyone had a positive experience. The only down fall to the spa is you can not go and use the lap pool, steam and sauna rooms without paying a daily fee. The gym was spacious and never crowded. The equipment was well maintained. The game rooms were a nice retreated on days at see when you needed a break from the sun. The staff was all very friendly. Bingo was more expensive on this boat.

Ports Of Call

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas

The water was very clear and the island was clean. The was a nice buffet on the island and good music to listen to throughout the day. It was very relaxing. Get there early though to stake out your spot on the beach.

Water isle bike adventure was really nice. Downtown shopping also had some great finds.

We did the mangroves kayak trip. It was absolutely wonderful. You could have done the tour with an additional beach stop, we did not do it, however the beach was really nice and we wish we had. Other people in our party did not do a planned excursion and they said there is really nothing to do at this port, so they would recommend picking an excursion through the ship.
Don't Miss: Mangroves kayaking
