Review summary

We had an all around horrible experience. Why the islands are gorgeous and worth a visit, we will never cruise again. The ship was one disappointment after another - and such a waste of money.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Cafeteria food at best: don’t have any expectations of quality.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
The amenities are almost non-existent: no track, the pool is embarrassingly small, no slides/golf/sports activities on deck.


2 out of 5
The ship just isn’t geared toward traditional cruising experiences. The shows are one-man performances at low level quality and there is no true theater performances.

Children's Programs

1 out of 5
This was the worst part of our cruise. We had three children in our party (1, 7, 9) and the staff was so rude that they didn’t want to return after two days in the kids club. The staff clearly doesn’t want to be there and there are very few entertainment options. You’re better off on a different cruise line.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Some great, some horrible - pretty standard in that sense.

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
Everyone in our party had the stomach bug during the trip. Admittedly tight quarters contribute to this but so does a dirty ship that isn’t consistently disinfected.
