Sail Date: Feb 2020

After reading all the negative reviews of this boat I was terrified of what was to come but was pleasantly surprised. The boat is smaller but there was loads to do and the service and food were all great. I've cruised before and the food was some of the best I've had!

A word of warning... the boat did get a bit tippy at points which I heard was due to the lack of stabilizers. I would reccomend packing gravel or some kind of seasick medicine if you're sensitive to motion.

The ports were incredible with Turks and Caicos my fav. We did the stingray kiss encounter and it's something I'll never forget. There is a beach right at port so you could just relax all day here.

Cabin Review

We had 2 adults and 2 kids in an interior cabin on deck 4 and there was lots of room. No smells either anywhere that some other reviews have mentioned.

Port Reviews

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata)

No beach but pool and waterslides and reasonably priced drinks. Enjoyed the day!
