Review summary

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
All very clean. Ship too big. Always on the wrong deck or wrong end. Very attractive but very confusing.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Clean, but too small. Balcony was nice but needs lounge type chair. Could not get wife’s walker past the bed.

Ship tip

Getting off is Hell. You have a nice trip, then it is all wrecked in the debarkation. Just too many people.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

Labadee (Cruise Line Private Island)

Nice active stop.

Falmouth, Jamaica

4 out of 5
Easy to get off. No short (2-3 hr) shore excursions, so just hung around the dock shops.

Cozumel, Mexico

3 out of 5
Again, seemed like very long shore excursions, but dock area had plenary going on.

Terrible. The people that help don’t know much and don’t speak much English. Much confusion and employees either bark at you like sargents or just don’t know how to direct you. Ruined the trip ending.
