Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2018
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Interior

First cruise for our family of 4. Ease of boarding and settling in was impressive. Beautiful pools, fun slide. Multiple sun decks to choose from. Great mini-golf. Overall fun atmosphere. Food was good, very kid-friendly. For parents, not great tho. No formal dining options on this ship. Entertainment was fun and abundant, for kids and parents. We spent several evenings in the library playing board games! On shore excursion with "Fury" catamaran team in cozumel was exceptional. Would highly recommend the snorkel, beach adventure. Our state-room hostess, Phayom was superb. She was very friendly and learned all of our names the first day aboard. My boys ( 8 & 3 ) fell in love with her! She made us feel at home and was always right around the corner if we needed anything. It was sad to have to say goodbye to her. (Tho my 3 yr old did say goodbye with the biggest hug he could give, followed by a sincere "I love you!"). I'd agree with his sentiment!

Thank you for all of the great memories.

Cabin Review

Cabin 4E u 229

Cabin was out dated. Water leaked from the shower onto the carpet ( it was fixed within 4 hours of letting them know. Great response time!) minimal closet space for our family of 4.

Service in the cabin was great. Our State-room hostess, Phayom, took wonderful care of us. The room was kept tidy. And, the boys enjoyed coming back to towel-animals set out on the bed every evening!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Stingray Swim

Cancelled when we got off the ship. Tried to get us on another snorkel trip, but wouldn't allow children to snorkel with us. Very disappointing. Ended up staying the dat at the beach which worked out just fine.

Deluxe Sail, Snorkel and Beach Party

Phenomenal day!!! Great snorkeling. Easy for our 8 & 3 yr olds to participate. The beach was beautiful. Set up with chairs, food and drinks and a lot of floating jungle-gyms for kids and big kids to have fun on. Would go again!
