Great ride even in rough seas. Have a great stabilizer system. Entertainment was superb, some of the best we have seen on any ship. Clean ship and very roomy.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Simply just average. I have seen this start to happen with cruising as the cost of sending one of these large vessels is going up and they can only sell the rooms for so much. Food quality is slipping


5 out of 5
Best overall entertainment of any ship we have been on. The dancers were fantastic and the comedy was great.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Very friendly staff, they would go the extra mile if asked and sometimes when not asked.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Room was fine, we had a balcony which gave us a bit more elbow room. Bathrooms were large in comparison to other ships, especially the shower.

The island getaway was beautiful but the main city was not so great.
Don't Miss: Cayo Levantado island escape. Beautiful beach
