We'd never been on this small of a ship before, but we loved it. Prior reviews commented about the age, but overall, the ship was in good shape. What impressed me was the staff. Our housekeeper, waiter and assistant waiter were outstanding. Being a smaller ship, we saw more of the Captain, the main staff, and the Cruise Director and Assistant Cruise Director, who are husband and wife, than we normally do. Having a cabin on Deck 7, it was only 2 floors to the Windjammer to get coffee, and only one floor to the Diamond Lounge. You didn't have to walk far to get anywhere. I didn't expect much of the entertainment, but was pleasantly surprised. Earl Turner was an all-around entertainer. Perhaps geared towards the older crowd, but he put on quite a show. If you ever get to see Ivan Pecel, you are lucky. Very funny while juggling an axe, bowling ball and an egg. We we're were not overwhelmed by the comic, but we were tired and the theater was half empty. as it was for most shows. The late night comic show was the last night, and we didn't make it. The production shows are so-so repeats, but the musicians and dancers are very talented. Its not their fault that RCL keeps recycling uninspired material.

We were not used to the Centrum being used for so much. They held some of the silly competitions there, which were well attended. The pianist was very talented.

I got up and took some short runs most mornings. The ship's track on Deck 10 is almost 1/4 mile, which was a nice surprise. The equipment in the fitness room was not in great shape, and not too many machines.

Cabin Review

Spacious Ocean View Balcony Accessible

Typical balcony room. The bathroom had been updated. Great housekeeping We were near the front of the ship, so it was an easy walk to the Windjammer (which is in the front) to grab a couple of cups of coffee and return to the room before breakfast.

Port Reviews

San Juan

We stayed the night before the cruise at Hotel Milano. Great location. Small rooms. Good bar on the roof. We love Old San Juan.
