Embarkation was a little slow. But the waiting area was comfortable. Cabins were open and available as soon as passengers boarded which was nice.

The cabin was very nice. There was plenty of storage space for hanging and folded clothes, as well as cameras, suitcases, etc. The balcony was roomy and comfortable. A life raft was just beyond the sitting area. It did not obstruct the view outward but did obstruct the view of the waterline.

Crew members were very attentive and friendly. Cabin stewards were unobtrusive but very thorough.

The meals were exceptional. We opted for the open dining and had a wonderful time meeting other passengers. Every meal was a different group. There was always someone with an interesting story to share.

Ports of call were so easy. No lines waiting to get off the ship. Coming back aboard was just as easy. Even at Half Moon Cay, using a tender, getting off and on was easy and quick.

Disembarking was a breeze. We chose the 2nd time slot and actually were off the ship, through customs, and on the road before our actual time to disembark.

We liked the ship and trip enough that we have placed a deposit on a future cruise.
