Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Did not use specialty dining. Main dining room was great. Have had better food but overall was good

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
pools were good, hot tubs the best.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Entertainment was top notch from main theater to smaller venues. Lots of celebrations in the piazza but get there early as seating is extremely limited

Children's Programs

No children

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Room steward was awesome. She was in our room 3 times a day, freshening up everything from towels to chocolates on the pillow.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We love the mini suite because of 2 reasons - it has an actual tub which makes for a larger bathroom, and it has a curtain to separate bed from living area. My husband can stay up to all hours watching tv without disturbing me.

Ship tip

Prepare to enjoy yourself!

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

5 out of 5
Upon return did combo excursion to flamingo park and airboat on Everglades. Very awesome.

Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island) Did not visit port

Winds were too strong and local tenders could not dock with ship. Apparently this is a common phenomenon late December

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

3 out of 5
Again the winds prevented us from our choice of excursions but we had a good time walking around town and then walking back along the beach.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

3 out of 5
Original excursion was cancelled due to winds but we were able to visit honeymoon beach in on St. John. Small but Very beautiful beach

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
We were going on excursion and it went smoothly. We disembarked as normal, collected luggage and walked to tour bus. Our hotel was around the corner from Port Everglades so tour bus dropped us and our luggage at port at end of excursion where we easily got a cab to hotel.
