Chose this ship because it was new and to explore the ports for our honeymoon. Booked 3 shore excursions. Ziplining in St Kitts was my absolute favorite! The power scooter excursion on Grand Turk was fun and water was gorgeous, and the provided lunch was delicious! Golden Eagle catamaran excursion was enjoyable, but boat could do with a few less passengers to allow a little more comfort room. Cabin 6205 was nice for interior price with picture window of front of boat. But the loud banging sounds from the waves crashing was quite extreme. Enough to wake one from a deep sleep. To turn on lights you must place sail & sign card into slot, just dont forget on your way out the door! Room size is sufficient, would like an extra shelf or drawer for clothing. Entertainment was great, really enjoyed every production. Never caught a comdey show, but everyone raved about them. Music in the atrium was always great! Loved the electric violins. Nice to have a movie theater on board, played 2 current movies, some documentaries and thrill experiences. Service was good, but nothing exceptional. Guest services always helpful and accommodating, but trying to ask a crew member a question in passing always seemed hurried or unaware. Food was my greatest disappointment. Nothing absolutely stood out as delicious. My favorite meals were taco bowls from the Blue Iguana, which always closed before dinner. Lobster rolls from Seafood Shack were good, but not willing to pay for it for every meal. Really enjoyed our teppenyaki dinner. Chef was funny and entertaining. Lots of food, but again at an extra cost. Overall, nice experience, but would not take same iteniaray again.

Cabin Review

Interior with Picture Window (walkway view, obstructed view)
Cabin 4J 6205
Cabin was sufficient in space. But was extremely loud. My best guess was the waves, but sounded like loud bangs!
