I’ve travelled on this cruise ship 3 years ago and I remember the food being so amazing and I was super excited to have that again. Unfortunate, that was not the case. Guys burgers and all those workers there 100% saved the day. We had an awesome waiter every night Herbert so amazing at what he does and so very sweet, Milovan made sure to put a smile on our faces throughout dinner and the show they put on, Juno and Budi very prompt and polite which made us feel more than welcome. Overall service was always superb and I am convinced that made the trip so memorable. Because the food wasn’t as great as expect we often ate at the sushi spot with Eduardo (I cannot remember the other gentleman’s name) and I can guarantee the $70 I spend on sushi in a week was well worth it. He described what was what and made the experience delightful and makes bomb sushi. Up on the deck, Iwan will always greet you by name, which is insane because there were well over 2000 people on that ship, made us feel so special. Our room was so cold, just the way I like and was always spotless. Jeerawut did an amazing job and was so patient when we would stay in during the cleaning times we set. Him and his crew are such hard workers even though we left a huge mess of confetti every night. (they deserve a raise!!) Overall, the cruise was pretty smooth sailing and our cruise director Andy made the experience worth while (even though the food wasn’t as great and we couldn’t enter the twerk contest)

Crew 10/10

Cabin Review

Porthole
Cabin PT M18
The cabin was always very clean thanks to Jeerawut and his team, the bathroom smelled a little weird like poop (pipe issues, not the cleaners fault) we told the front desk lady and she sent someone up he made it a little better but for a room a lil on the expensive side we expected more. After he came in and cleaned it smelled better

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • ATV Tour
    So much fun ATVing around the island, the two guys guiding our tour made the experience memorable. They took us to the second highest point on the island and gave us a little insight, I wish I remembered the names (vin diesel and Adam Sandler) was the alias. Saw flamingos and horses and even got a little muddy. So much fun!!

  • Snorkeling
    The two guys on the boat were pretty funny dudes. The driver was there for 15 years and gave us so much tips on how to take full advantage. All very patient and sweet and even let me feed the fish. He took us to the best jerk chicken on the island, didn’t have to go out of his way but did to make the experience even better. Over all the best and most beautiful way to explore the island

  • Half Moon Cay
    Staff so amazing but make sure you bring big spray!! I got bitten up and even had a super bad allergic reaction (the dr wasn’t open so unless I wanted to pay a pretty penny for some help I just iced it) overall great experience with the staff and interaction with the horses, recommend 10/10

  • Balmoral Island & Sting Ray Experience
    The stingrays were awesome but the beach was ok. $30 bucks for chicken tenders and fries was outrageous, $7 for a water bottle was insane. I know we’re on vacation and you expect to pay some money but that is insane. You go broke or starve no winning there and don’t let me get started on drink prices. Talk about inflation, also that fake Starbucks in there is illegal I’m pretty sure because you have to buy a franchise not just paint a pic of Starbucks and charge 20 bucks for coffee. Stingray side workers were superb, the people over on the beach side were not very friendly
