Review summary

The suite offered a level of luxury that helped to make our anniversary vacation even more special.  The aft facing penthouse has a balcony that offers the most stunning views!  We were constantly surprised with various treats in the cabin (chocolate covered strawberries, champagne, tarts, canapes, etc).  Both our concierge and butler  were available with a quick call and went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied.  Outside of the room, the ship, although smaller and older, is very clean (we cruise a lot - and this ship is a 9 out of 10 clean).  The buffets offer a wide variety and the dining room experiences are top notch.  The best part of traveling all inclusive is that you don't need a card to get a drink... no waiting, no card swiping, no signing!  Walk up, ask for a drink, and bam!  Drink in hand and walk away!  I wish other ships offered this...

I think it is the time of year we traveled, but there were only three other kids that showed up in the teen camp. My kids made fast friends and then came up with their own agenda. Summer was loaded with teens... fall, not so much.

Space! The balcony is fabulous and the room was inviting and well cared for.

Ship tip

Booking a suite gets you several perks, one of my favorites was that we could dine in Cagney's Steakhouse for breakfast and lunch... far from the crowds.

Rent a Jeep (but not trough the cruise ship)! Exploring the island is incredible!
