Sail Date: Jan 2023
Cabin: Balcony

My wife and I sailed on the Mardi Gras in February of 2022 and wanted to invite some friends to enjoy it all again.

We ended up with 7 couples. The best part of the Mardi Gras is all the food options that are included.

I recommend doing the open dining option. This gives you access to ChiBang and Cucina Del Capitino as well as the main dining room as an option. You do not have an assigned eating time and you do have to request a table on the app but it is pretty easy and it updates your wait time right on the app. As mentioned we had 14 people and we were able to eat together as a group any night.

Cabin Review


Nice cabin with balcony. Nana our steward was always there but never seen and kept everything great

Port Reviews

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata)

We got a hillside cabana and was probably the best value for the money excursion I have ever done. Beautiful view of the ship, mountains, water and pool. Had a Spa and zip lining was included.

Grand Turk

Great water and a nice place to just walk around

San Juan

We just walked around Old San Juan and it was very easy and a nice day.
