Explorer's Lounge

Great spot to grab a morning coffee, get a lovely view off the front of the ship, work on a puzzle.... we started each morning here!

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Not very many activities on board but we really didn’t mind. We are not smokers, so we did not care for the large smoking area by the pool/bar area.

We took a trolley guide. Our guide,Susan, was fantastic. Port was ok. If you go outside the gate you see how poor and dirty the country is.

George Town, Grand Cayman
