Additional details

Sail Date: Apr 2019
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony Stateroom

This whole trip felt like we were in a line. Getting on the ship took 2 hours or more. Disembarkation was super unorganized, we were late to Florida and only enjoyed 2 hours after paying for a 30$ shuttle. They failed to announce tender reservations were required to get off on the private island which was our second stop, so we waited for hours again. Third stop we were in a line as well, although this one moved a little bit faster. Food was horrible. Nothing great even about the special restaurants. Some were booked even on the first day on thru the entire cruise. The staff was hit or miss. Some not very nice at all. Entertainment was cool. Adult only area wasn’t adult only and no one even tried to keep it in order. No chairs to lay on by pool or sun deck on more than one day. Just too many things didn’t go well. I needed a vacation after my vacation. One great thing was the gentleman who cleaned our room.

Nice, and clean.

Our toilet messed up about 3 times.

Port Reviews

Port Canaveral (Orlando)

After major delays we payed for a shuttle to be on beach 2 hours before having to head back.


Getting off required a long line again.

Great Stirrup Cay

No announcement made to explain you required and tender reservation. Did it that morning which put us back hours again. Once we got there. It was loaded. No chairs. Food was ok.
