Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Disappointed with the food in the dining room and the Windjammer for lunch and dinner but the breakfast buffet was amazing as well as lunch in the main dining room. Chops was just ok compared to last trip

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
They were ok. Beat part was trivia woth Katz. Just a couple things going on on pool deck amd and geared toward men. Ex: belly flop and sexy many contest. Nothing women can perform in if they wanted to.

Found the production shows boring and several of the main singers voices could not be heard. I felt like I was at a high school musical. The band in the Centrum were ok but always seemed to be playing boring "old people" music. The 70s Disco show was a lot of fun and the piano player on Schooner's was very good. The Battlenof the Sexes was a lot of fun as well as The Quest

Children's Programs

Had no children with us

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The Staff and Service was excellent. They were always pleasant and friendly, could not do enough to help if needed.

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
The ship's layout for me was excellent as we were midship close to the elevators which was perfect where ever you were on the ship. I don't particularly care for the Centrum area as it was always super crowded and no room to see performances if you had late dining. It is such a small area.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The room was small but expected that. The room steward kept it spotless. The only thing I was disappointed in was all the black sloppy caulking around the picture window. When the blinds were open it drew your eyes right to it. I thought of if I leaned on it it would fall out.

Ship tip

If you want or need something just ask. This goes for every place on the ship. The staff will do everything in their power to help.

Ports of call

Willemstad, Curacao

5 out of 5
Loved it. It was so beautifully decorated for Christmas and so many things to do. We were there until midnight so every thing was lit up, lots of places to eat and drink and the people were so friendly.

Oranjestad, Aruba

5 out of 5
We love Aruba, best beaches and shopping

Kralendijk, Bonaire

2 out of 5
Another great port, small but so much to see. We rented golf carts and toured the island at our own pace getting to go where the excursions didn't. We visited a Donkey Sanctuary that was well worth the price.

Castries, St. Lucia

4 out of 5
The island is pretty in most places but the people selling their wares although nice were all over you to buy something even if you were not interested and told them that.

St. John's, Antigua

3 out of 5
We only took a walk to the shops and it so crowded as there were 4 ships in and the weather wasn't good for a beach day. Wasn't impressed with it.


5 out of 5
Very organized. We did the walk off and once the line got started it went fast less than a half hour to debark.
