Loved the size of the ship. It was easy to get around. The captain was great and made a point to visit with us on many occasions.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was excellent. We were a little disappointed in Sabbatini's restaurant this time. It wasn't up to our expectations in food and service. The Grill and Buffet were outstanding. We also were impressed with Macarena. She always had a smile and fun conversations with us.


5 out of 5
We liked the entertainment a lot.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Lito and Juan were our servers at dinner and they were very attentive and fun. Several of us are diabetic and Lito had a special sugar free key lime pie made for us which was delicious! We switched seats almost every night and they always remembered each of our food preferences. We travelled with two other couples and a single person. The single had a suite and invited us for cocktails. The suite was fantastic and we all enjoyed it.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Everything was in great condition except for the tobacco smell in our hallway. The ship and our room were kept up well.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Anthony kept our room in excellent condition. The room itself was very comfortable and we enjoyed the balcony when it wasn't too humid.

Pros: The size of the ship and the great staff who served us so well.

Cons: The stop in Tobago. Also, our hallway had a very strong smell of tobacco.
