Yes, we'd cruise this ship again

Room Type: Suite

During the last few days of the cruise, I wished that we had booked the Eastern Caribbean also & done it back to back. Due to weather, we were unable to visit Belize. Nassau, Bahamas was a great alternative. We recommend not waiting until the last night to look at your photos. Visiting the coffee shop in the atrium & having a different flavored macaroon with my mocha was a fun treat every day.

Cabin / Stateroom
Very comfortable & lots of storage space. It was enjoyable to sit on the balcony in the early morning.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Disembarkation was fast - we did the early walk-off as we had vehicles parked in a ramp with a shuttle service.
Ship Quality
It's a beautiful ship. I wish I would have studied the layout of the common areas before the trip.
Appreciated the many hand sanitizer stations - wish everyone would have used them.
Destinations and Excursions
Chankanaab Beach in Cozumel had many activities. The snorkeling was excellent!
Onboard Activities
Both the kiddie and regular ropes courses were used by family members. The spa was used by 6 of us. There were always lounge chairs available in the forward area - not so much in the pool areas.
Children's Programs
The 4-year old grandson enjoyed the many activities.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Food was excellent! The music in the Manhattan Room during dinner was a nice touch. Cagney's Steakhouse was excellent! Because we liked to eat in Savor or Taste for breakfast, the staff became accustomed to our group & knew we'd need a table for 10 as soon as they saw us.


Make dinner reservations early in the week for the last night of the cruise. Most of the specialty restaurants were booked solid for that night.
