We arrived at the cruise terminal at noon and it took 2 hours to get on the boat. The line to check in was very long but we were all in a good mood. We had the ultimate beverage package and every drink that we ordered other than specialty coffee and bottled water was included. We picked up bottled water on the way to the ship and had no trouble bringing it aboard.

Our room was 5096. It was a normal size room and Sandy kept it clean, neat, and tidy. the Our cabin steward was Sandy and he was very nice. I noticed that towels were only replaced if you left them on the ground. He was able to find extra pillows and an extra blanket for me when I asked the second day and from that point I slept well. I noticed that the employees on this ship would memorize your name and refer to you by name which I really liked. I think it also made me tip more often. The bathroom was organized nicely with four small corner shelves and a self below the sink. The shower and toilet areas had doors to close those areas off. I really liked this feature. I have cruised four times before and this was my favorite bathroom set up. The beds were firm and fairly comfortable. The rooms were quiet and I rarely heard noises outside of our cabin.

The entertainment was fairly good. We really liked the name that tune games and the games that included the passengers, thanks Geo. I even participated in the dancing with the cruise staff and we won 2nd place. Shout out to my dance partner Leo!!!!. That was fun! Leo was very nice to my young adult children and answered many of their questions. Thanks Leo.

Port Reviews

Great Stirrup Cay

Wonderful snorkeling along the edges of the islands. Volleyball was also fun. Add another court or two

Costa Maya

gypsea divers were great but the water conditions were not great that day

Grand Cayman (Georgetown)

really neat to see the stingrays and then the coral. They did not stop at 7 mile beach like they said they would. $90 for 3 of us

Ocho Rios

beach over crowded but beautiful. Very small area for a lot of people

Port Canaveral (Orlando)

transportation limited
