This was our first cruise and was an excellent choice. As soon as we walked onboard the crew was very friendly and welcomed us. Departing out of Puerto Rico was very nice mostly because of how nice the scenery was. The ship was amazing. It had plenty to do on board. It was very well maintained and clean. The food was excellent. The crew was one of the best parts. They were always friendly. We are already planning another cruise.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The first three nights we went to the winjammer and had very good food. On the fourth night we went to the main dinning room and had excellent food. After that night, we went to the dinning room for the rest of the cruise. They asked us our names the first night and every night after they remembered our names and what we wanted to drink. It was fantastic!


5 out of 5
The theater shows were wonderful. You felt like you were not even at sea. The singers and dancers were excellent.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff were some of the frienliest people I had ever met. They always greeted us in the morning and asked us how our day was at night. Even just passing a crew member in the hallways, they would say hi to you.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship size was very good. The layout was very easy to follow. Everything was clean and the decor was amazing.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We thought the room was going to be very small, but it was good size. We had an oceanview stateroom on deck four and were near the lobby. The room was very clean, the bathroom was small but it worked. The towel animals were also a definite highlight.

Pros: Food, Solarium, Port of Call, Decor, Cleaness of Ship, Crew, Shows

Cons: None
