Sail Date: Oct 2019
Cabin: Aft-Facing Balcony
Traveled with children

While the ship and sailing company were chosen for us, as this originally started as big group/family trip, I wouldn't have chosen any other for our first cruise experience. The ship was fun, full of entertainment, food was delicious and abundant, but most of all we are extremely pleased with how incredibly clean the entire ship was maintained!

We had the pleasure of being able to enjoy the mini golf course and above ropes courses multiple times. The various water slides were definitely fun and a huge hit with the kids! The food was delicious, the variety was plenty and the service was excellent. We had the opportunity to participate in multiple game and competition shows and it was a great way to have fun and even win some great prizes! Highly recommend watching the shows Burn the floor and Rock of ages as both were incredible and full of amazing talent!

While we never left the boat at any of the ports, we still had fun while relaxing and an amazing time surrounded by stunning views!

Cabin Review

Aft-Facing Balcony

Cabin B1

Roomy, clean, well maintained!

Had the most amazing and and attentive Steward who checked and cleaned out cabin multiple times per day, always had an answer to my multiple inquiries, and was very gifted in the art of "towelgami". Thank you so much Egi Martin!

Port Reviews

Great Stirrup Cay

Port was inaccessible and the boat never stopped at the port. Family had snorkeling underwater adventure scheduled that we were looking forward to but despite not being able to go, we were refunded right away and still had a fun at sea day.

San Juan

Beautiful views

St. Thomas

Wasn’t interested in shopping but beautiful views


The most beautiful port
