Sail Date: Oct 2016
Cabin: Interior

We chose this cruise because of the port mainly. The ship was wonderful with so much to do, I don't believe we even did everything there was to offer. Embarkation was smooth and so was disembarkation. The ship was clean, the staff was super nice, a lot of fun, and accommodating,We had rain all day on one of our sea days, but that did not matter with all of the other options to keep busy.. The food was excellent. The ports were beautiful.Cozumel we planned an excursion and very happy that we did. Grand Cayman we choose to explore on our own. It was amazing. the people were so friendly. Had no problem feeling safe there. We fell in love with this port.. Ocho Rios we choose to adventure on our own, but would probably plan excursion next time. the people are a little aggressive. We had so much fun on our first cruise this will not be our last.

Cabin Review


Cabin 4F

was spacious enough for the little time we spent in the room. I like the interior it is nice and dark and we didn't feel much movement .

Port Reviews

Grand Cayman (Georgetown)

Loved this port Our favorite port of all. Did not do an excursion, just adventured off on our own. felt very safe. people were so kind. stopped and had coffee, went snorkeling on our own. The best snorkeling we ever did. had lunch, very relaxing. Didn't even make it to Seven Mile Beach and still had the time of our lives...

Ocho Rios

We choose to walk around on our own. most people were nice, vendors were very pushy for you to buy items. Very different culture. It was interesting but next time I think we will plan an excursion.
