Review summary

So much fun with so much to do. Symphony is a beautiful and massive ship.


5 out of 5
Easy on easy off but getting out of terminal was a freaking nightmare. Very disorganized! Took 1 1/2 hours to get our ride and leave. But getting off the ship was a breeze.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Loved all the food choices! And the restaurants in Central Park was lovely and the food we had was great.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Hairspray was excellent but all the shows were spectacular! Shopping at the stores were underwhelming. Too much jewelry and not enough variety and way over priced. But there was always something going on. Enjoyed the Symphony casino. The parades and shows on the Promenade was loads of fun!

People rude, too crowded. Couldn't find a place to even sit on the beach and got charged $1 to use public restroom. Kids running around naked. We were glad to get back to the ship.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

Loved San Juan. A beautiful port. Loved the people and history of this lovely place.
