Very simple, even with the extra screening for coronavirus.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
No real complaints, but would like to see a decent poolside fresh grill option. Burgers, etc, at the buffet are not-so-great.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Plenty to do for us, but we cruise to relax. The gym is good too.


5 out of 5
Overall, a great job! We really enjoyed Beatlemania and the ship's orchestra was fantastic. Also the guitarist in the clubs and centrum is a real talent.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Excellent all around.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Older ship, but very clean. Did not hear of anyone getting sick.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Great balcony cabin at the back corner of the ship. Very happy. Bathroom tiny, but adequate.

Ship tip

If you like outdoor movies, sit toward the front. Noisy at the back of the Lido deck.

Bridgetown, Barbados

Took an excursion through ShoreFox here that was horrific. The driver abandoned us and we had to find our own way back to the ship. Very scary. Obviously, our day was ruined and ShoreFox refuses to do anything about it.

Ponce, Puerto Rico

2 out of 5
Hard to find something to do. Highlight was the local coconut ice cream on the town square.

St. George's, Grenada

5 out of 5
One of the best beaches anywhere! Use the local water taxi to get there. $10 r/t pp

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

5 out of 5
Fine port for disembarking.
