We have cruised on the Pride but wanted something bigger and newer and offering more to do. Entertainment was disappointing although the choreography was excellent. Some of the voices were not good. Loved the imax movies. Havana cabana met all of our expectations. Crew was friendly and service was good. Enjoyed the ports although we had been to all but Grand Turk before. For anyone that has not not been to Aruba before, you must see it. Richie Rich did a great job and our Cabon Stewart, Clemente, was friendly and always looking out for our needs. He came out in the hallway every time we left our cabin to see if we needed everything. Thoroughly enjoyed the Havana Cabana perks (never crowded and so close to private pool and hot tubs). Loved the balcony. We chose the Vista because my daughter gets seasick on the smaller ships. Did not like the set up of the theater. You must get there early or you don’t get a seat. The view from the balcony is terrible with obstruction and plexiglass that made it difficult to see.
