Review summary

Couldn’t ask for a better cruise! It was very port intensive but we loved every minute of it!

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Embarkation was organized and fast!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The windjammer had a wonderful variety of food! I especially loved the omelet station at breakfast. Our service in the main dining room was amazing. Muzaffar and Ana are fantastic!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We participated in some of the comedian headliners and the adult version of the quest. The only thing that was a bummer some of the activities we wanted to participate in were way too late in the evening.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Comedians were funny and DJ Alex was a hit.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Fantastic service and the staff was so friendly. Pankaj was our room steward and he was always so on top of it. Our waiters Ana and Muzaffar gave great recommendations at dinner. Seriously everyone was eager to be at our service.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Older ship but everything was clean and it was easy to find our way around.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It was an inside cabin but it was larger than what we expected.

Ship tip

The solarium is so relaxing as it’s only adults. We also went to the very top deck as we would leave our ports of call and there was hardly anyone there.

Ports of call

San Juan, Puerto Rico

5 out of 5
Get to know San Juan it is truly beautiful! We did our own tour and it was a great experience. We went to see the Puerto Rican flag on Fortaleza Street, Senior Paleta’s for a popsicle, Barrachina for the original piña colada, and the forts. This is one of my favorite ports!

Bridgetown, Barbados

5 out of 5
Love barbados! We went to the boatyard and had the best time! For $50 we were able to get two chairs, umbrella, welcome drink, and 2 snorkeling tours! They have fun water slide, rope swing off a pier, and tramp! We swam with sea turtles, sting rays and plenty of fish. Go! Go! Go! PS- try the flying fish!

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

5 out of 5
We took the ferry over to St. John and went to trunk bay! This is one of our favorite places to go! The snorkeling is awesome and the beach is so clean as it’s a National Park.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

5 out of 5
Maho Beach was fun to go to! We had two chairs and an umbrella for $20. It was fun to watch the planes go overhead. There is a super tasty restaurant down the beach! Try their Guava Berry Colada it’s fantastic!

St. George's, Grenada

5 out of 5
Grenada is beautiful. The taxi drivers are a little crazy though so watch out for that 🤪 We went to Gran Anse Beach and it was nice. $20 for 2 chairs and an umbrella. It rained on this day and a tropical storm was moving in so the waves were pretty choppy but still had a great time!

Roseau, Dominica

5 out of 5
This port was fantastic! We took a tour of the island, went to the gorge, and finished our day at Champagne Beach. If you like to snorkel this is the place to be. Champagne Beach has two gorgeous reefs plus all the bubbles from the volcano (take water shoes). The gorge was fun to go to and a once in a lifetime experience. I would recommend getting your own taxi to go it’s way cheaper. We loved this port!

Disembarkation
