Review summary

We had a great time and will probably rebook this cruise. It was extremely enjoyable. The weather was fantastic except for the last day it rained in the morning and it rained the day we left otherwise it was awesome weather to enjoy the area.

We got to the terminal early and only had to wait maybe 15 minutes after registering. Not bad at all in the cruise ship world.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
We had a couple of poor waiters on the entire trip. Cagneys was great except for one of our waitresses made us feel cheap because we had purchased the dining package. One of the waiters in the large dinning room was terribly slow. Every other wait staff was wonderful. The food was good some was excellent.

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
We enjoyed the pool and didn't partake in the other activities. It wasn't because they weren't available but because we didn't want to.

We went to the last and the first show. I'm not crazy about magic and comedy so we chose to do other things while those were playing. Personal choice! The groups that sang were great as well as the dancers.

Service and Staff

Our steward introduced himself and checked if everything was done to our satisfaction. It was, he was great.....no complaints at all.

Ship Quality

We really liked the layout of this ship. There wasn't a casino that we had to go through to get anywhere. We don't smoke and really appreciated that there wasn't a smoky casino to walk through.

Cabin / Stateroom

As roomy a balcony as we've ever experienced. Clean and we had enough storage to put everything away.

We stayed close and did the beach a couple of time. Walked through the Marriott....WOW that is impressive. Check out this place if you ever get on the island. One beautiful garden and impressive hotel.

We walked right off with our bags and over to the uber spot. We sent out a request on the phone and the uber arrived less than 5 minutes later and we were off to the airport.
