Review summary

We had a great trip. The ship was clean, the staff was amazing and we were so happy to return to the sea. Our servers, Matthew and Mark were delightful and took great care of us during our dinners. Pool time was great. The splash pad area for kids was a hit with our boys. All in all it was a great trip

Went fairly smoothly. We had children who needed a Covid test. One person said we would wait 15 mins, another said 45. Results showed up less than 30 mins later.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Giovanni’s was by far the best. Chops did not seem as tasty as on the Oasis. Izumi was fantastic.

Onboard Activities

The pools seem a bit small for how many the ship holds.

I only saw the Effectors and it was amazing.

Service and Staff

Shelton, Putu (pool service, lime and coconut) and Andrew (room attendant) were a pleasure and so lovely to work with. The best experience with each of them

I found it to be great for two adults. Plenty of closet space. The bathroom seemed a bit tiny, but the shower size was great. Very well designed and laid out.

It’s not my favorite, but we did enjoy our time on Blue Lagoon.

Oranjestad, Aruba

2 out of 5
No one in our party cares for our excursion in Aruba. The stops were too far apart only allowing less than 1 hour at the beach.

Willemstad, Curacao

3 out of 5
We did the land a sea tour was fun. The beach area was a little small and they did not have any options for a meal except chips and salsa which they ran out of while we were there. Only being allowed to do certain excursions with younger children and not having food options was challenging.
