Additional details

Sail Date: Mar 2016
Cabin: Balcony

Embarkation was excellent, on board within 30 minutes of arrival.

The room was in excellent shape and to our surprise we had a refrigerator in the room, all of the comments suggested this was not the case on the sunshine so we brought a cooler to adapt. We found no problems with understaffing, Bar staff were prompt at returning to our table for refreshing our drinks and always smiling and fun. Had a ball with Cruise Director Donkey, the voice from above, and enjoyed the shows , piano bar, atrium bar entertainment, Red Frog pub, a few trivia contests, the previous cruisers party etc....

Dining room staff were enjoyable and attentive to our needs, found the food to be cruise perfect. We enjoyed all of our ports of call.

Cabin Review


Cabin 8E

We love the 1st balcony cabin on lido, always book it, always will. The cabin was well kept and bed was comfortable. The bathroom was a little smaller than other ships (oh well).

Port Reviews

St. Maarten

we went to Maho beach and enjoyed the day with the planes landing and taking off, if you havnt done this give it a try. we had a really good day

Port Canaveral (Orlando)

we live here, no excursions needed.

St. Kitts (Port Zante)

we took a taxi to shipwreck beach, It is not as crowd pleasing ie bands or dj's and dancing, but we had a good day and bite to eat and were lucky enough to have about 30 monkeys come off the hill to eat the sugarcane provided. It was a great photo op and something you don't see everyday.

San Juan

We walked from the ship to the fort for a tour then went through old san juan to have an original pina colada at barrachina, excellent, then finished up with a stop at senor frogs, had to buy the shirt,. great day

Grand Turk

make your way up the beach to Jacks Shack for a quaint getaway, we would have stayed here for the day but had arrangements to meet others at Margaritaville.

We had a good time there also just hanging at the pool and listening to the dj.
