This was a 5 day cruise out of Tampa to Grand Cayman and Cozumel. The ship is smaller than the mega-ships but it has a lot to do and lots of open space to enjoy. The ship was in good condition with good food and entertainment. It could not have been better. The windjammer has a nice feel and not crowded with a great deck aft which allows for outdoor dining. The main dining room is pleasant and the food was very good. The entertainment was above average with good production shows and special entertainers. The former Viking lounge is now the Starburst lounge and the Diamond Club and Concierge Lounge for suite guests. All of these offer excellent views and pleasant surroundings. There is mini-golf, rock climbing, basketball, shuffle board, ping pong and the usual pool events. The colony club lounge at the stern of the ship is an excellent lounge with great views and it, along with the Schooner bar, was always busy.

Cabin Review

Owner's Suite - 1 Bedroom
Cabin OS 1064
one of the best rooms we have ever stayed in. Very spacious, listed as one bedroom but the room opens up to feel like one big room. Plenty of storage, large bath room with tub(spa) and shower and two sinks.
Deck 10 Inside Cabins, Balcony Cabins, Suite Cabins
