As a Latitudes Gold / Platinum member we were smoothly transitioned from land to Ship to being pampered all week long.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Delicious food everywhere you turn and tropical drinks were within sight at all times as the waiters and waitresses on deck outdoors / poolside or in dining venues catered to all our needs promptly.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Zip Line, water slides, salt water pools were spectacular. No much of a wait on anything we decided to try on each and every day.


5 out of 5
Great entertainment and shows each night and party type music all day poolside with all kinds of activities in between.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
Splash Academy was well staffed with professional men and women from all over the world. They had all kinds of fun activities for our daughter to participate and have fun doing, as she was wiped out by days end.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The BEST there is , pure and simple! Always smiling and willing to help in any way possible and would treat you like royalty at all times. This includes the captain and his officers who were always visible and approachable for picture taking and questions to housekeeping making up the room 2 or 3 times a day without ever needing to ask and the Hostesses and waiter / waitresses in all the restaurants remembering your names throughout the cruise.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Huge Ship with all kinds of unique design features and well designed features throughout each and every deck and venue. Ship was spotless at all times of day and night with lots of staff there at a whim if needed to keep things spotless.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Comfortable bedding and clean as a whistle shower and bathroom. The balcony was just right for a table and 2 chairs with a see through glass front so you could have a great view while in the cabin and bed resting.

Ship tip

Go and have fun and just let loose as everything is taken care of for you. Interact with the staff and learn all about their home countries, cultures and families.


5 out of 5
We had Priority disembarkation and we were probably some of the last off the ship as we had a late flight and were not in a hurry to get off. Gave us a lot of time to say thank you to all staff and officers.
