  • Cabin Type: Ocean View

Graduation celebration cruise for the kids - our 2nd cruise and won't be our last. Embarkation in Galveston was fantastic again. Drop off to on deck in under an hour. The Freedom was nice but we all preferred the Valor more (just a more beautifully decorated and themed ship despite the same layout). Service, food, and entertainment were all good. Nothing stood out as fantastic or negative, just good overall value. The only real complaints would be occasional foul smells by the elevators on the main deck. (2nd level) and the washers/dryers not working. Booked transportation in advance and went snorkeling at Doctor's Cave Beach in Montego Bay. Great value and looks just like a postcard. Did the Sea Turtle Excursion in Grand Cayman. It was enjoyable but not nearly the experience we were anticipating. Fun but a little let down. Shopping in Cozumel is always good. Absolutely ready for another!

Cabin Review

Ocean View

Cabin was perfect. Great cabin steward. Everything was clean and maintained regularly. Fridge doesn't work very well. Overall, it was exactly as we expected.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Easy on. Drop off to on board in under an hour.

Montego Bay

Pre-arranged transportation to Doctor's Cave Beach. As beautiful as a postcard and snorkeling was amazing.

Turtle Farm

Cool place but a bit of a let down. Not nearly as impressive as we anticipated but still glad we did it.
