Regarding the cruise: it was our first time cruising and this short trip did not disappoint! From the moment we began exploring how it all worked, choosing and re-choosing what packages we wanted, and finalizing our booking, it was a great experience. Each customer service person we dealt with was friendly, informative and helpful. We opted to get the Faster to Chill boarding package and so glad we did! Checkin began a little after 10:00, we got pumped up by crew in the VIP lounge prior to boarding a little before 11:30, got our drink package bracelets, checked in at our muster station, grabbed a drink, a cheeseburger in paradise and we were sitting in the sun on the deck by 12:05! We were in our stateroom by 1:30 and able to get refreshed and join the fun of the sail away party before we had dinner in the Fins dining room. Food at every spot on board was fantastic! Think our favorite was definite Cheeseburger in Paradise bar. The evening performances were wonderful. Anna Banana was so fun and such a great ambassador for the cruise line. We really enjoyed the Euphoria lounge for the entertainment there and especially the bar tenders (Ana, Ari and Jolly in particular!) Each of them were friendly, attentive and we shared a lot of laughs with them in the 2 days! Our excursion to Taino Beach Resort was perfect. Beautiful beach, relaxing pool and great drinks! We would definitely go there again! Disembarkment went just as smoothly as boarding. We enjoyed having time to grab some breakfast, getting time back in our room to repack and prepare for our journey home. Once customs cleared the ship, we made our way to the 5th floor, down through customs (we did have our passports) and we were in the parking lot waiting for our Uber to the airport by 8:30. So easy! Having never cruised before we had no idea how we’d like being on the ship and if it would fun. We are so happy we went! We can’t wait to go again, in fact we’ve already booked for August 2025 on the new ship Islander with our best friends! Can’t wait!
