Review summary

Overall it was a very nice experience. The layout of the vessel is different, but you get used to it. Even though it was a sold out trip, it never felt too overcrowded. The food was good, but not gourmet. Too much chicken. Missed some shrimp or escargots. The theater was too small, but at least they had two daily performances. The ports of call were good, but needed more time in some of them.

Waiters and room stewards were very professional.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Did not love the ship design, but you get used to it. Elevators were too slow. The casino was too big and spread out.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Kind of small, but comfortable. Bathroom sink too small and in an awkward place.

Ship tip

Try to book a cabin with balcony. Interiors are OK, but small and dark.

Ports of call

San Juan, Puerto Rico

5 out of 5

Oranjestad, Aruba

5 out of 5
Aruba is Aruba.

Willemstad, Curacao

4 out of 5
Beautiful port, but needed more time to explore it. Departure time of 1:00 pm for Curaçao is absurd.

Castries, St. Lucia

4 out of 5
Should have arrived earlier to enjoy its beaches and other attractions

Basseterre, St. Kitts

4 out of 5
Best place to do your shopping. Best prices.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Best disembarkation in our 25+ cruises. No lines at all.
