Main dining rooms had good selections everyday- great choices in specialty fares!

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
As most folks on cruise agreed- pool deck too small. Teenagers enjoyed the cars/laser tag/ escape room.


5 out of 5
Choir of Man, Kinky Boots, Prohibition the Musical and Tribute Beatles were fabulous. First class high end entertainment!

Children's Programs

No children

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
95% of the time waiter service was fast. Always pleasant. Steward was always smiling and attentive.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Layout is terrific. Design on top decks tilted towards teens. Totally can see how ship will be great in Alaska! Observation lounge is definitely the lead lounge!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin is basically a balcony with larger bathroom. Bathroom was great with larger shower. Spa shower head was a bonus. Plenty of room. Great for those who don’t like small spaces.

Ship tip

Don’t miss the Waterfront !

Ports of call

San Juan, Puerto Rico Did not visit port

Been there. Don’t like evening stops

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

4 out of 5
Did St John tour. Do this tour for gorgeous views of the Caribbean!

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

4 out of 5
Much of the island is still badly damaged. Our island tour was not the best- photo stops were too long- cut into beach time. Very little narration about island


5 out of 5
Smooth and quick. We were not off first and it still was smooth and organized!
