Ship experiences

Food and Dining

The MDRs were very nice. Staff was great, very attentive and the food was well prepared. There was a good selection without making me feel overwhelmed. The buffet had plenty of offerings and more than once I tried new to me foods.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our service met or exceeded our expectations throughout the ship. We did wait a bit for service in the bar, but that's not unusual, it is a bar after all. They can only serve so many people at a time

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
We found everything to be clean and we'll maintained. They were almost meticulous in the upkeep of the ship. Someone was always vacuuming and cleaning up

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We absolutely loved loved loved our cabin. The size was just fine for 2 people who travel kind of light. The bed was so comfortable, room temp always good and the bathroom was good. I loved the shower, perfect water pressure and nice and hot. My only complaint is I dislike shower curtains but that was perfectly clean and acceptable.

Ship tip

Go with an open mind. Be prepared to do and experience the possibility that cruises offer. Understand that you are ultimately responsible for your own enjoyment, you get out of anything what you put in. Just bring your humor and enjoy!

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

3 out of 5
It's a port city, we had a good time here, understanding it's a city, busy and bustling

Nassau, Bahamas

4 out of 5
We enjoyed our time here. Again, port ckity, third world. Not the most beautiful but not horrible. We new going there what to expect.but we were pleasantly surprised to find it being a fantastic day. The locals were so warm and welcoming and far less pushy than what we experienced in Mexico. There was a good police presence. We didn't go on any excursions this time but definitely enjoyed just wandering around.
