Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
I ate one meal at Savor, it was ok. Mainly we ate all meals at Buffet, we like eating when we want too and definitely not dressing up is a plus!

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
The fitness center was hot and stuffy! We did the rope course as a family and of course the camera on walk the plank was not working after they finally got me to do it, very disappointed! Mini golf was a little rough. With so many people on these big ships, you would think there would be either more pools or at least a bigger one so everyone can enjoy!

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Our room steward was awsome, no problem at buffet but our cruise itinary changed and we got less time at one port that we had to take a tender, staff was a bit short and it was a very SLOW process, that should not have taken so long, some people only had 45 min on island. Our tender was suppose to be at 12 noon but we didn’t get on tender until 1:40 and had to be back on boat for 5. So no excursions we could do, disappointed.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
We had no problem finding our way around, staff was always cleaning all over the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our room steward was wonderful, very accommodating since there were 3 of us in the room. Its more comfortable with only 2 but we were only there to sleep!

Ship tip

DO NOT GET APP, iconcierge, its free to down load but the $10 you pay to just text people on the ship sounds great but either you don’t get it or you might get it 2 days later. Since our itinerary changed it was not updated neither was the touch screen on the ship, so total waste of money. With all technology on these ships, you would think they would update these things!!

Ports of call

Falmouth, Jamaica

2 out of 5
I went into town for shopping but felt unsafe, being asked if I would like to buy some drugs or being followed around and constantly being forced to purchase something.

George Town, Grand Cayman

2 out of 5
Not there long enough to be able to do anything!!!

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

3 out of 5
Went there last year, my husband and daughter went on 4 wheeler jungle ride, which they enjoyed.

Carried our own luggage, out within 10 minutes! That’s the way to do it!
