Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The buffet food on this ship was actually the best we’ve ever experienced. And Carney’s was wonderful. Service in LaCucina was so-so. It took about 2 1/2 hours for the meal. Ocean Blue was great and service very good.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We utilized the mini-golf, pool, hot tub, and water slides. Pool is very small and area pretty cramped.


5 out of 5
Shows were good. Loved the comedians, Million Dollar Quartet, and Foreigner Rick show. Burn the Floor was ok, but lots of the same dancing over and over.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Waiters and bar staff were great. Room steward great as well. Only have to ask once!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Ship was beautiful and they keep it immaculate. Easy to navigate. Only thing I didn’t understand is the touch to the door button to open. Open automatically from outside to in, but have to touch it to open from inside to out. With all the ‘sanitary’ concerns, this was surprising.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had plenty of room and storage. Missed having a couple of drawers. But still lots of storage and room in general.

Ship tip

Enjoy the beautiful ship.

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
We did the sting ray sandbar and it was amazing. Loved this excursion even though fairly crowded.

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

3 out of 5
Did Dunn’s River Falls and Bamboo Beach Club. Falls were great, but would not do it with that place again. We received a partial refund. Trip out to beach and back was over 3 hours. Food wasn’t ready and ran out of beverages. So our 6 hour trip was 3 hours + of bus travel.


5 out of 5
Disembarked smoothly and quickly. Luggage very well organized.
