This cruise was for our 20th wedding anniversary. The ship is gorgeous! The ziplining was great. The entertainment group did a wonderful job, so many beautiful costumes. The evening entertainment was not THAT great. No comedy only a few Karaoke nights. Lots of things to do with the children. We ate in the main diningroom only a few times. It took forever to receive our food. We were just receiving our dessert's as the next group were preparing to enter the restaurant. We were the last ones to leave the restaurant. We found it easier to eat at the buffets. Long waits to enter the ship while at the ports due to the fact they only had one person scanning your room card and only one person at the security machine. They need to speed this up a little! I did not do any shore excursion thru the ship, but they had plenty to choose from and everyone we spoke to had a good time. It was very easy embarking, disembarking.....well we can not blame it on the ship. We had to be out of our room by 7 AM. We were scheduled to get off at 9:15 AM. We finally stepped off the ship at 11 AM. All in all, we would go back on the ship, it is beautiful! The staff was wonderful, and it was great seeing quite a few familiar faces from the Divina!

Cabin Review

Cabin 12026
Beautifully decorated room! Very little storage, good thing this ship will be used for a 7 night Caribbean cruise. Our bed was next to the closet, very little space between the bed and closet When you open the left door, you have a hard time reaching the hanging clothes due to the fact that the shelves are built in. Bathroom was good, balcony wonderful. Full size couch which was comfy.
