Review summary

I had a wonderful time. I was a little nervous at first because of all the negative comments about my ship but there were just as many good comments too so I kept an open mind. If anything keep an open mind and you will have the best time ever on your vacation, that is what it is all about! ;)

Embarkation

3 out of 5
This was only due to a group of people trying to stay on the ship. The crew had to find them before we could board.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
I thought the food and drinks were great. I was a little disappointed that the Italian restaurant didn’t have any meatballs and spaghetti or lasagna but I did get an Italian filet meal and it was delicious.

Garden Cafe

5 out of 5

Food was really good, and a huge selection for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The Atrium Bar

Things going on all the time here and we played deal or no deal, that was a lot of fun!

O'Sheehans Neighborhood Bar and Grill

Great wings, and nice sports bar.

Cagney's Steakhouse

5 out of 5

We had the best seat in the restaurant! At the very back of the ship watching the waves behind us. Our meal was delicious, filet and shrimp.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Thought the pools were small. They had 3 for 4300 people. Did not use them..

Spice H20

2 out of 5

Was a little annoying all the kids hanging out when it is suppose to be for adults only. They would walk back in the bar area where even smoking was going on.

Casino

5 out of 5

Have so much fun playing roulette! Seemed as if everyone was because we were all winning :)

Entertainment

5 out of 5
The comedy shows were really funny. I also loved the piano show, that was a riot.

Headliners Comedy Club

5 out of 5

Went in a couple of times to watch a comedy show and the hollow at the moon. Was very impressed with both shows. Laughed so hard my stomach was sore.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Service and staff were exceptional. I was very pleased and impressed.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
I felt the crew did an excellent job keeping the common areas clean. Wasn’t impressed by the layout but we managed.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
I thought the room size was sufficient for 2 people, would not recommend a third. The bed was very comfortable for me and my husband didn’t complain. Michael our steward was amazing. He was available whenever we needed anything, very friendly and did and excellent job keeping our room fresh and clean.

Ship tip

Don’t be afraid to use customer service is you have any questions, they are very friendly and helpful.

Ports of call

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

3 out of 5
We didn’t do an excursion but we did visit the shops at port. I was not impressed, they need more.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

5 out of 5
They had tons of shopping but I was unable to go because we were there for a short time. Instead we took a cab to Magen Bay beach. It was a rough ride there because we went over the mountain but once we were there it was wonderful.

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas

5 out of 5
The beach was beautiful, and enjoyed the shopping. Recommend bringing money.

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
Disembarkment was a little strange. Felt like they put us through a maze on the whole length of the 5 th floor. Once we were off the ship though it went very quickly.
