Initially we chose this because it seemed like a good deal being a first cruise for thee both of us. We were very pleasantly surprised. The ship is not the newest, best, or the largest and quite frankly I’m glad. Our room was a balcony suite, good size and clean. Our room crew were so nice and helpful and that goes for every one of the crew we came across. The bartenders at the Atrium were fabulous and our entertainment there(Paul Greenwood) was very talented. There were more entertainers and all were good, but Paul was my favourite. The buffet was very good with choices for every palate. We did dine at the international and Italian and both of those were excellent. The service at both was impeccable. All the staff seemed to be happy at their jobs and paid attention to detail. We did not do the steak and lobster restaurant as we ran out of nights. We did talk to one person that was not chuffed by the food saying that — cruise line had lobster on the buffet every night and we did respond that I’m sure that cruise was a lot more expensive. Some will complain about anything. I however found absolutely nothing to complain about and will definitely recommend this cruise line to anyone!

Excellent value for your dollar!

  • Stingray Swim
    This is not what it looks like in the pictures. There are about 6 boats all at once and each boat/crew has one stingray that they are holding on to that you are being pictured with. Probably not a bad thing as people are stupid and walking around all over and not paying attention to stay away from the barbs.
    Apparently the swimming with he sea turtles is way better, cheaper and you can spend the whole day
