Review summary

A wonderful, relaxing, enjoyable trip,on a beautiful ship with a great captain and amazing crew!

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Wow!!!! We did the Ocean Ready at home. We picked up our Medallions at the port as we are from Canada. We arrived at 1030, and were on the ship by 11! Just awesome!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff were kind, and helpful. The captain was a blast. We particularly enjoyed meeting him during breakfast one morning when he was out greeting people!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Whoever wrote a few weeks back that the ship had rust and mould, was not on the same ship I was. It was beautiful and spotless. Cleaned regularly! The captain even explained to us that he asks the staff to be meticulous with cleaning and placement of chairs and tables etc. The layout was easy to navigate as the design is similar to their other ships. No elevator issues for us. Loved the Wakeview pool at the aft of the ship. So glad they added it.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Loved our balcony cabin and the fresh new decor

Ship tip

Your first drink using the Ocean Medallion is free, when you order it thru the app......that was a nice surprise!

Ports of call

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

The Skyride to Paradise Point was really pretty and the views were beautiful! Try the Bushwacker drink at the top...but likely best to share......the recipe I found includes 7.5 ounces of alcohol!

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

Wish the shopping was a bit better in port. We did the snorkeling and catamaran excursion. It was ok....I would have preferred snorkeling in the ocean as opposed to an area where they planted things to see such as a helicopter and submarine. The beach they took us to tho was really nice!

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
We did the walkoff and it was simple and easy. Loved having my luggage with me until the day of departure. We took a cab to the airport, and that went incredibly smooth. A fellow outside just asked us if we wanted a cab, and then walked us directly to it. $11 per person to go to the airport.
