First cruise on a ship this size, and I can say I don’t want to ever go back! Went to Saint Maarten, Puerto Rico, and Haiti. Loved Saint Maarten so much, I looked for real estate there! Boarding was a little crowded. Previous cruises were quicker, but we arrived later than usual, so perhaps it’s normal. Took less than 30 mins to get onboard, which included waiting in line, pictures for Seapass card, and boarding. Ship was immaculate. Boarded Was very impressed with all the things to do onboard. Cabin was super clean and ready right at 1 pm. Dining was excellent. Ate breakfast at Johnny Rockets and windjammer most days, and I favored windjammer for the view in the morning and wide selection of food. Lunch was different each day, but main dining room was favored over the others. Windjammer was a close second. We had a balcony over the boardwalk, so we got 1 free meal at Johnny Rockets that we used on last cruising day. I would eat there everyday if I could. Dinner was at American icon grill, since we used the my time dining option this time. I liked it since it allowed more flexibility in booking shows and events that was have otherwise conflicted with a set dinner time schedule. Entertainment was excellent. So many options, I wanted to book another cruise back to back so I could have another 7 days to do more. Service was the best I’ve had on a ship. Ports were great. I loved Saint Maarten. Didn’t do much in Peurto RICO, but only had a few hours before we had to be back on ship. Labadee, Haiti was awesome. So many things to do. Was much larger that I invisioned. Disembarking was very smooth. We chose to take our own bags off. Left room at 7:20 and was in the car headed home by 7:45. Didn’t have to wait in a line more than a minute or so. The longest wait was for the elevator in parking garage.

Best cruise ever

Cabin Review

Boardwalk View Balcony
Cabin 4I 11307
Cabin was much larger than I’ve been in on other ships. Balcony had excellent view of the boardwalk. The zip line crossed overhead almost right over our balcony. Great view of aqua theater from balcony as well.
