Review summary

My wife and I sailed with her sister and husband (who were celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary} and a second sister. The ship is fantastic! I think I would have enjoyed an eastern Caribbean itinerary more than the western we were on. we enjoyed Roatan and Costa Maya but not so much Coco Cay and Cozumel. Our favorite relaxing area was the Central Park in the shade of the trees and plants.

Service and Staff

Way above average! We really enjoyed the service in the Concierge Lounge/Bar/Costal Kitchen area

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
It is so large and well laid out that even with 5500+ Cruisers aboard it never seemed crowded even at the elevators! The ship itself is very clean and well maintained

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Very clean and a great attendant. Slept like a baby on a very comfortable bed. There is so much to do on the ship we didn''t send much time in the suite.

Ship tip

Get an early dining time so you can enjoy the evening's entertainment!

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas
